America’s Oil Crisis.

Fortunately we have a compact car that is only driven back and forth to work so our gas usage is minimal. Yet, we’re paying $3.83/gal locally for our gas, which has gone up nearly a dollar a gallon since the first of the year.

Many in the media are pointing fingers of blame at Big Oil and the Republicans for the Oil Crisis. We need to look back to 1995 and former President Clinton who vetoed drilling in ANWR. Had Clinton not vetoed the ANWR drilling, America would have 1 million barrels of oil per day produced domestically. This would have eliminated much of our dependence on foreign oil supplies and kept gas prices from rising.

Our elected officials inside the beltway need to be held to account for their inaction and lack of forward thinking for America.

    This is unadulterated nonsense.

    ANWR represents a pittance compared to world oil demand – and would have (at best) knocked the price at the pump down a nickel – and only for a very short time.

    I don’t know about Clinton, but can say that if Obama and the democrats would have had their way in this bill we would see much higher prices than now! Much higher I tell you! Thanks to the republicans and a hand full of democrats they stop this stupid bill that Obama was for!

    when you buy a chinese product you are aiding the chinese worker who made it, to trade in his bicycle for a car. That car will be run on the gasoline that was once shipped to the USA. I believe there are 10 Chinese for every American so Chinese demand for oil will make American demand puny by comparison.
    American media has done such a great job of selling the American lifestyle internationally that an overwhelming demand has been created for the lifeblood of that lifestyle, oil. The only solution is an alternative fuel that has nothing to do with petroleum.
