    Wal-mart thrives in a bad economy because they gain customers who wouldn't normally shop there. When they start losing business we're really in big trouble unless it's because things are getting better. I think we all know that's not the case.

    those are the days the welfare/SSI checks are received/deposited/cashed. Also, the days food stamp cards are re-upped.
    Yea, that's why I don't understand the liberal hate for Wal-mart. Wal-mart makes money stretch farther for low income people and those on government subsidies.

    Liberal hate for Walmart? I am so excited for you to back that statement up.

We might be able to fenagle our way through a few more years with prices remaining artificially low because of deals cut by the government, or by taking over oil rich countries, but it's not gonna last forever.
    We'll be running out any day now. I've been hearing that for fifty years. Oh well, we can convert our cars to natural gas if the environmental wack jobs would get out of the way.

    Did you really just cite peakoildebunked.blogspot.com in a ****ing debate?

    *Edit to add:

    Granted, it is better than most who would just say it and not cite a source at all.

    What is AWYR? Drilling in ANWR might get some extra oil but it won't affect prices or supply very much. It would be wiser to hold onto it for future needs.

    *Edit:

    I figured this MSNBC article would be about how drilling for oil would barely affect the world's supply but rather it was about how long it may take before drilling begins (which is true but unimportant since even when drilling begins gas prices will not change). Here is a better source:

    The problem is this: While increased oil and gas drilling in the United States may create good-paying jobs, reduce reliance on foreign oil and lower the trade deficit, it will have hardly any impact on gas and oil prices.

    That's because the amount of extra oil that could be produced from more drilling in this country is tiny compared to what the world consumes.

    Plus, any extra oil the country did produce would likely be quickly offset by a cut in OPEC production.

    "This drill drill drill thing is tired," said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service, which calculates gas prices for the motorist organization AAA. "It's a simplistic way of looking for a solution that doesn't exist."

    sorry,
    There are plenty of other links, that was just top of the list.

    this is the second one. look legit

    RIGZONE - US Has Almost 100-Year Supply of Natural Gas

    The amount of natural gas available for production in the United States has soared 58% in the past four years, driven by a drilling boom and the discovery of huge new gas fields in Texas, Louisiana and Pennsylvania, a new study says.
    The report, due to be released Thursday by the nonprofit Potential Gas Committee, concludes the U.S. has more than 2,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas still in the ground, or nearly a century's worth of production at current rates. That's a 35.4% jump over the committee's last estimate, in 2007, of 1,532 trillion cubic feet, the biggest increase in the committee's 44-year history.

    Yeah, I edited it. I actually changed my mind since most people do not even bother posting any links.

    More offshore drilling won

    Liberal answer is always, it won't help because we won't see a drop of oil for 10 yrs.They've been saying that crap for more than 10 yrs.

    We can give Brazil 2 billion dollars to drill in the gulf and tell them we'll be their best customer, but we won't open up ANWR. Makes no sense to me.
