    Now I have another question on this post,

    How much of that $3.65 gallon of gas is actual cost of the product, and how much is tax?

    Whatever the tax is, it isn't enough. There are very few countries in the world that pay less than Americans for gasoline.
    Raising the price thru taxes will likely be the only way to reduce our addiction to transportation on demand.

    BTW, I was watching the Presidents speech on his energy policy this morning, and CNN cut it off. I had to find it on the internet to watch the rest of it.
    Seems that CNN thinks there are more important, or more "entertaining" issues to spoon feed the public....

    I agree, CNN and the rest of them can be real garbage from time to time. But lets take at look at what you asked me here....

    OK, what is stopping them from exploring on their leases?
    Permitting and regulation, as well as from what I understand possibly not a good track of land to explore.

    And this issue of holding leases and not exploring and/or drilling is not new. It has been going on for a long time.
    Yes it has, the EPA is a farce.

    Surely you don't think that Obama is the only obstacle for the last 10 years?
    No, but contrary to his words he is hampering it as much as he can now.

    Or that ALL of the leases are being held up by the current administration.
    He is the administration in power now, so by default at this moment he IS the one to blame.

    I saw something on Discovery that was going through the process of how these leases and permitting was processed. And from what it sounded like in todays market, the Govt was granting leases which the oil companies had to pay for, on tracks of land that the Govt picked, and then made them sit on those leases while they went through the permitting process sometimes not happening until the lease was up then charging them again. What a joke.

    Now, you can attempt to explain what this remotely has to do with my post.

    Good luck.

    I think his argument is based in one area won't solve all of America's energy needs immediately so why try.....Regardless of how laughable that approach is.

    Nice, but my post had nothing to do with the price of gas or even drilling in ANWR.

    Try reading before responding next time. It really helps so that you don't look so foolish next time.
