    Of course Senator Obama pointed to the Iraq War... the moron. Let's see... we exploit our plentiful energy resources and what might happen? Instead he wanted to turn food into ethanol, ramp up on government subsidized propeller driven energy, make cars less safe by forcing mfg.'s to cut weight and therefore safety, and have us drive cars that don't work well when it gets cold. Brilliant. We have coal (which he wants to bankrupt), oil, gas and nukes. He's all for propellers, food and capturing cow farts.

    The Illinois senator argued that the war had raised costs for American households by $100 a month, and that it had contributed to higher oil prices. “When you’re spending over $50 to fill up your car because the price of oil is four times what it was before Iraq, you’re paying a price for this war,” he said.

    High gas prices is a good thing for us, it will make us conserve, and hopefully allow more of our troops to live.....
    I don't like the idea of middle east wars that have the sole purpose of sustaining low gas prices.

    Then why did US oil production drop when republicans had control of the country?

    You are kidding, right? How much are we going to conserve if gas goes up a quarter? No dount this is good for Iran and Saudi and allows them to fund more terrorists but not sure how the math works in favor of the U.S. Please explain.

    Ethanol is a Bush admin era program

    Cars today are safer then they have been in the past and actually far heavier then cars of 20 years ago. The original VW GTi weighed around 2000lbs, todays GTi weighs around 3000 lbs. All the cars I have driven old and new do well in the cold.

    And re Erod


    The US does not have more oil then the rest of the world, it has oil shale which can not be profitably extracted at this point in time in vast quantities. You want to pay $10 a gallon for gas, try to use Oil shale to power America

    How about the oil equivilent of the nat gas we have? How about using nuclear like the French? How about allowing drilling in more than 500 feet in the gulf? How about drilling offshore on the East Coast?

    I understand that Canada is getting rich by selling oil to the U.S. so it makes sense you would want to hold down production and alternatives here. But an American could/ should be distressed by our continued lack of energy policy. This problem has gone on for decades so to point to Bush or any president, other than the one in office who can do something now is tired hackery.

    And where did I say the US did not have massive quantities of natural gas ( North East USA). My boss's son is heavily involved with the extraction of natural gas in the US NE (geophysicist), or that the US should not use nuclear power, or drill off the coast?

    For all I would only suggest that strong safety and environmental regulations are in place and are enforced.

    As for Canada getting rich, generally it is Alberta, that is getting rich, Sask and Newfoundland are doing well now. Alberta is actually hurting abit due to the shale gas that is now being extracted in ther NE driving down natural gas prices

    I am all in favor of higher gas prices. The only way to get sustainable high prices is to have a high tax. No politician has the guts to do the right thing and have let's say a $1 gas surcharge.

    I then do agree we could have somewhat less usage. We still need to develop our resources to really make a dent in what we import.
