    The experts were saying the same thing back when we were worried about an ice age from Global cooling.

    The majority of drivers commute less than 40 miles each day.

    And how exactly is that electricity being made, again? solar ain't cuttin' it yet, either.
    You are not knowledgable about solar systems. I have a 1.5 KW solar panel system that will pay for itself in 7 years. The remainer of the 25 year life of the panels produces free electricity from the !!!

    Who did you vote for, if not McCain?

    You don't understand how the world oil market works do you?

    "Doug Holtz-Eakin, the White House’s Chief Economist under Bush, joined MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Tuesday to discuss the problem of rising gas prices."

    " MATTHEWS: If we were taking apart the ANWR and drilling everywhere, would the price of gas be much different? In the world market, since this all fungible, if we were doing all that here in the United States, would the price of gas be much different? I‘m just asking that question.

    HOLTZ-EAKIN: No, he can‘t change the price very much. So, I mean, he‘s trying to do things—

    MATTHEWS: But the conservatives are saying all you have to do is pump like—all you got to do is drill like—Pawlenty said, just got at this, dig, dig, and dig, drill, drill, and drill, and somehow the price of the gas is going to down on the world market. You‘re saying that‘s not true?

    HOLTZ-EAKIN: Well, I mean, you can‘t change the oil price very much with the U.S. exploration. It certainly can‘t change it quickly. We know that. And I think Republicans have been honest about that."

    "Holtz-Eakin is correct that increased oil and gas drilling won’t lower gas prices because the amount of extra oil produced is minuscule compared to consumption. Indeed, any extra oil the U.S. managed to produce would be quickly offset by a cut in OPEC production. “This drill drill drill thing is tired,” said the Oil Price Information Service’s chief oil analyst Tom Kloza. “It’s a simplistic way of looking for a solution that doesn’t exist.” The idea that “Republicans have been honest about that”, however, leaves something (like veracity) to be desired.

    Thanks for your opinion!
