    Exactly...it's her decision.

    LOL... Did you read the article at all?

    "We are not idling the plant due to poor Volt sales. We're gearing up for production of the new Impala,"

    Heck, did you even read the title of the article?

    Nonsense, take away the restrictions on production and exploration, rethink the nuclear policy to allow improved use, open sites not closed to exploration, and those pennies turn into dollars.

    The US has some of the largest energy reserves in the world. Instead of blowing smoke into windmills and turning perfectly good corn whiskey into fuel, and attempting to make people believe that electricity just gets there on its own without being generated somewhere, we need to utilize our own resources.

    The present administration has stated that we need 10 dollar gasoline to make alternative energy more competitive.

    Please, let's deal with reality and not right wing fantasy. I may have exaggerated a bit, but the fact is that an all-in drilling approach would have a minimal effect on gas prices, and even then not for several years:

    even if tomorrow we opened up every square mile of the outer continental shelf to offshore rigs, even if we drilled the entire state of Alaska and pulled new refineries out of thin air, the impact on gas prices would be minimal and delayed at best. A 2004 study by the government's Energy Information Administration (EIA) found that drilling in ANWR would trim the price of gas by 3.5 cents a gallon by 2027. (If oil prices continue to skyrocket, the savings would be greater, but not by much.) Opening up offshore areas to oil exploration — currently all coastal areas save a section of the Gulf of Mexico are off-limits, thanks to a congressional ban enacted in 1982 and supplemented by an executive order from the first President Bush — might cut the price of gas by 3 to 4 cents a gallon at most, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. And the relief at the pump, such as it is, wouldn't be immediate — it would take several years, at least

    We do have significant energy reserves when you factor in natural gas and coal, but our oil reserves are not very large relative to world supply -- which determines price.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    According to GM. But how would GM know why GM is doing what GM is doing? Clearly you know better.
