    A lot of folks can't understand how we came
    to have an oil shortage here in our country.
    ~~~
    Well, there's a very simple answer.
    ~~~
    Nobody bothered to check the oil.
    ~~~
    We just didn't know we were getting low.
    ~~~
    The reason for that is purely geographical.
    ~~~
    Our OIL is located in
    ~~~
    ALASKA
    ~~~
    California
    ~~~
    Coastal Florida
    ~~~
    Coastal Louisiana
    ~~~
    Kansas
    ~~~
    Oklahoma
    ~~~
    Pennsylvania and Texas
    ~~~
    Our
    DIPSTICKS
    are located in
    Washington , DC!!!
    Any Questions???
    NO? Didn't think So.

    There is lots of oil in the world. By some estimates, there are another 4 trillion barrels.

    However, there aren't many cheap sources anymore.

    Or maybe we should be looking into alternative energies instead of allowing idiots who want to rape our environment to appease corporatists to make our decisions.

    The cost of gas per gallon doesn't bother me as much as now that we're into Spring and I need to keep the air conditioning cranked, the mpg on my Jeep Cherokee goes from 12 to just over 9.
