Some are predicting that gasoline prices will top $5 a gallon by the summer months. Will this curtail your driving habits?
Recent energy assessments show the US has over 200 years supply of oil, to include oil shale, on land and water areas controlled by us. We have the technology to extract it safely and cleanly but are prohibited by artifical obstructions, politically and ideologically induced. This does not include our vast natural gas and coal reserves. All this human and economic misery is completely unnecessary. Don't forget the coal waste to diesel fuel plant up by Gilberton which uses proven technology but has yet to come on line because of anti-energy (read environmental) law suits. The United States of America has the resources to be completely energy independent. The free market will provide affordable alternatives when the time comes, it always has. However for the present, control energy, control the people - think about it!
