    Well here we go again...

    Have any of you heard the latest moronic rant from the savior of the human race Barack O'Bama?

    He in his infinite wisdom is telling people to get your car tuned up and increase tire pressure so we don't have to drill for oil.

    He'd rather buy from our enemies and have thousands die in car crashes due to over inflating tires than bring the price down and make it easier to live.

    As for most Liberal thought, this one is as stupid as it gets.

    Vote republican and vote often.

    Hmm.. all of our new reserves if tapped tomorow would comprise what.. 5% of our total consumption... so lets see here.. out of 70% that we import, we would be able to drop our imports to 65%. woooo hurray.. energy independance is right round the corner...

    I wonder how much fuel would be saved by maintaining our cars?

    this reminds me of a recent e-mail i received:


    "I don't know what you guys are paying for gasoline.... but here in
    California we are also paying higher, up to $3.50 per gallon. But my line
    of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to
    get more of your money's worth for every gallon..
    Here at the Kinder Morgan Pipeline where I work in San Jose , CA we deliver
    about 4 million gallons in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline. One day is
    diesel the next day is jet fuel, and gasoline, regular and premium grades.
    We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 gallons.
    Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground
    temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their
    storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the
    gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon
    or in the evening....your gallon is not exactly a gallon. In the petroleum
    business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the gasoline, diesel
    and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role
    A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the
    service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
    When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast
    mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3)stages: low,
    middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby
    minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at
    the pump have a vapor return. If you are pu mping on the fast rate, some
    other liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being
    sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less
    worth for your money.
    One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL
    or HALF EMPTY. The reason for this is, the more gas you have in your tank
    the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you
    can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This
    roof serves as zero clearance be tween the gas and the atmosphere, so it
    minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every
    truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon is a
    ctually the exact amount.
    Another reminder, if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage
    tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up--most likely the gasoline is
    being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you might pick up some f
    the dirt that normally settles on the bottom. Hope this will help you get
    the most value for your money. ---->

    DO SHARE THESE TIPS WITH OTHERS!

    WHERE TO BUY USA GAS, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON
    Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might
    even be good for us! The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We should
    return the favor.
    An interesting thought is to boycott their GAS.
    Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into the
    coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just buy from gas companies that don't import
    their oil from the Saudis.
    Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill-up the
    tank, I am sendi ng my money to people who are trying to kill me, my family,
    and my friends.
    I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil companies are
    the best to buy gas from and which major companies import Middle Eastern
    oil.

    These companies import Middle Eastern oil:
    Shell........................... 205,742,000 barrels
    Chevron/Texaco......... 144,332,000 barrels
    Exxon /Mobil............... 130,082,000 barrels
    Marathon/Speedway... 117,740,000 barrels
    Amoco........................ ....62,231,000 barrels
    Citgo gas is from South America, from a Dictator who hates Americans. If you
    do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount to over $18 BILLION! (oil is
    now $90 - $100 a barrel
    Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:
    Sunoco..................0 barrels
    Conoco..................0 barrels
    Sinclair.................0 barrels
    B P/Phillips............0 barrels
    Hess.......................0 barrels
    ARC0....................0 barrels

    If you go to Sunoco.com, you will get a list of the station locations near
    you.
    All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and each
    is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are
    importing.

    I saw the clip. Definitely as ignorant as it gets. Obama's energy policies are unrealistic in terms of short or long term fixes.

    Clinton's response to why he vetoed drilling ANWR in 95 was that it would take 10 years to get anything out of it. That was 13 years ago. Obama wants to perpetuate the same mentality.

    Yes we need an alternate energy source. But not being allowed to touch 85% of the oil in US territory because of the left because it might upset the eco-system while they will blot the land with miles of wndmills just boggles the mind to consider.

    Poor oil companies, they don't have any money to develop the 68 million acres of federal land they have under lease. No money to develop alternative energy either. Let's help them out. They are hurting.

    No.. the oposition to ANWAR is that it was set asside as a preserve. The mealsley 5% of our total consumption does NOTHING for this nation. Nadda, Zip, Zilche....Now the fact that you idiots keep parroting the bush line DRILL, DRILL, DRILL.. concerns me that you have learned dick about yourselves and bush and his corporate ties... NOW.. STFU.. sit down and enjoy a real energy policy developed by the democrats once they own the both houses and the senate... ASK yourself why this lame duck president with all his minions are pushing so hard ...
