US oil production revives despite offshore disruption - FT.com
Where are the price reductions at the pump due to the increased US production you claimed would lower gas prices???
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
So don't think anyone pushing for alternative energy intends to pull the national energy rug out from under you. Rather the intent is to build an even stronger, American-made floor for us ALL to stand on. We don't need a bunch of fundamentalist tweekers holding our nation's life-blood in their hands any longer. Help make America stronger by getting those monkeys of our back, and don't be put off by people and presidents try to do that very thing!

So, you're pissed that the public has to pay for 30% of the highways ??? Maybe that's because the public benefits far more than that for their existence.
What percentage of light rail is paid for by the public ??? I'll wait.
J-mac how can you say we don't have enough oil in this country to drill? They won't completely tap into alaska and Pennsylvania's oil business is great. I also have a friend who works in the industry in PA and he told me he was told there is enough oil in PA alone to last the us 10 years. If we haven't figured something better than oil in 10 years then there will be something terribly wrong.
