    Bush's lifting of the ban had no effect on exploration.
    It did cause prices to drop. It had no effect because democrats refused to drop the congress restrictions.

    Yeah, better to keep spewing the sulfur so you can save a few cents a gallon.

    Are you talking about ANWR? We can conserve more oil by conservation than is in ANWR!

    "Okay, let's say we had a real president who actually cared about ending our addiction to oil during a time we are at war in the Persian Gulf. Let's say he made a major effort to work with the governors and the mayor is to educate the public and perhaps had an economic stimulus package that included vouchers for low income people to get their car tuned up.

    How much could we save? Let's be conservative here and just say 10%. That's 900,000 barrels a day. That's ANWR.

    That's six times what is currently blocked by the congressional moratorium on coastal drilling."

    Reagan is the father of our modern day energy crisis. It is his legacy!

    Reagan, Bush Sr and GWB all enacted offshore drilling bans and you blame the democrats. We have been dependant on foriegn oil since the 70s, so blame them.

    I thought it was carbon that was the problem? The increase caused prices of everything to increase since it is transportation cost.

    Uhh YOU are the one who brought up sulfur in diesel. Are you saying that only one compound in the entire world can possibly be a pollutant? There's no possibility that sulfur could be bad if carbon dioxide is ALSO bad?

    Naturally. What's your point? Transportation costs are ALWAYS part of the cost of a product. That's nothing new.

    You really should do some research before you start looking like a fool.
    Have you ever heard of sulfur dioxide?
