    The petroleum reserve apparently is not for producing petroleum in Obama's world..

    Westeners don't want unsightly drill rigs in their neighborhoods...

    Oil, gas drilling rile West's energy embrace
    17 Dec.`12 — This used to be a land proud of its oil barons. Now the energy industry that has brought wealth and jobs across the interior West is prompting angry protests by citizens sporting gas masks and using bullhorns at public hearings.

    Is a savings account for spending?

    WOW. How SURPRISING that a state government almost entirely dependent on taxes from PETROLEUM activities would favor drilling for oil. WHO WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT ONE COMING?

    Obama wants to starve America of our own massive oil and natural gas reserves as he helps other nations exploit theirs. It's all part of his plan to bring America to her knees as payback for our past sins.

    The only new drilling is on private land. Anywhere he can (on federal land), King Barry is halting drilling and fracking.

    America's worst enemy resides in the White House, not in a cave in Afghanistan.

    See the movie "2016" for details.

    we better not to touch the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Instead, we need to build the keystone pipe line to get oil from Canada.
