The worlds major oil reserves are in Arabia (from where the WTC terrorists come from), Iraq (who hates our guts for invading them) and Iran (who we freed up by invading Iraq). There are hundreds of millions of new drivers in India and China. ALL oil goes onto the "world market" and is unregulated. Free Market. That's the Republican's God. Any oil found here goes on the world market. Seems like Republicans want that dreaded "government" to step in and "do something". Well, get used to it. Unregulated capitalism, let the market decide. This is what it looks like. You got your wish. Stop bitching. Our production will never match the reserves of one of those three countries. Never! Doesn't matter how much oil is found here, IT GOES ON THE WORLD MARKET! Get it? IT GOES ON THE WORLD MARKET! Got it? IT GOES ON THE WORLD MARKET! Good!
