...why do our liberal politicians say that if we open up all our oil reserves (CO Shales, ANWR, the Gulf, offshore and deepsea), that it won't effect oil prices! I mean the Saudis up there production to a 30 year high and the price of a barrel of oil drastically shot down! We have a ton more UNTAPPED oil reserves than the Saudis!!! The only ones who rival us are Russia (and maybe Canada), yet we aren't able to tap them all! So if the Saudis by simply uping production can drastically reduce oil prices, why can't America drastically do it by tapping all our sources?
