    Compared to our consumption, opening up ANWR would yield so little oil it's almost laughable. The capacity to change the status quo on oil production just doesn't exist anymore. Anything easy to find and easy to get to has long since been drilled.

    Um, ANWR would require exploration before drilling too. So would most offshore areas - you have explore before you drill, you know. Most of these areas haven't been explored.

    As already noted, ANWR's contribution to the total supply would be a joke anyway.

    Sure. Just don't pretend it will do a damn thing to lower gas prices or wean us off foreign oil.

    "My info comes from the U.S. Department of Energy."

    GOOD.. then you have a link...

    "That's completely ****ing absurd." Reality sometimes sucks..

    We will NEVER be energy independent - not of oil at least. " As long as people listen to crap like this.. you're exactly correct!

    The sooner you accept that basic fact and stop spewing "liberal lie" crap, the smarter you'll be.....The sooner you stop spouting liberal crap the smarter you'll appear


    Oil is oil. It has no political ideology. But those that deny America her own riches for political advantage certainly see it that way


    They say " link.. they say lots of chite

    I said oil AND natural gas...

    Ever worked a rig or built the equipment with which it is produced? Or designed equipment and projects to meet idiotic government regulations, IE: EPA or LEED?


    It ain't me that has an interrectal perspective here my friend!


    YOU need to quit listening to "they" because you are simply perpetuating "they"'s lies.

    Already provided on this thread. Here they are again:

    US reserves – 19 billion barrels

    U.S. Crude Oil Proved Reserves, Reserves Changes, and Production

    US annual consumption – 7 billion barrels (=19 million per day)

    U.S. Product Supplied for Crude Oil and Petroleum Products

    Notice that this means that if the U.S. were to be 100% independent of foreign oil, we would run out of current proved reserves in just three years.

    The rest of your thread had nothing to do with oil independence or gas prices, which was my point in the first place.

    How did it get so desperate?

    the stimulus, which was sposed to cap unemployment at 8%, didn't

    the deficit, which he promised to cut in half in 4 years, wasn't

    the home affordable modification program, which was sposed to keep 3 million in their homes, was a "dud," a "miserable failure"

    Obama's HAMP program 'failed miserably' at preventing foreclosures | OregonLive.com

    for starters...
