    Importing by itself is not bad, we import from Mexico and Canada, helping our neighbors have a sustainable economy.
    Importing from our enemies in the middle east, THAT is bad....

    I agree, but not many people that we really don't import that much oil from the middle east, at least no in comparison with Mexico and Canada. Most people also don't realize that we are one of the world's biggest oil producers, third in the world the last time I looked.

    The Senate blocked drilling in ANWR and Pelosi blocked offshore drilling off the continent.

    The House and the Senate make up The Congress.

It would be somewhat costly to convert diesel trucks to nat gas but we Obama is looking for areas to invest. If there are other alternatives that work we should be in favor of all of the above.
    alll those electric cars? they don't exist in numbers large enough to make a difference. I am pro nuclear, as a source of electricity.
    There isn't a reasonably priced car on the market that can run on electricity alone. The one thing Pickens and I agree on is using natural gas for trucks. They use professional drivers who can be trained to deal with the safety issues related to natural gas.
    Last thing we want if natural gas stations that allow drivers to fill their own tanks. There will be disasters on the news daily.

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that 1) alternatives aren't mass producable enough to totally replace oil and 2) that we're never going to develop alternative fuels in a dead economy.
