It has been a known fact that the Middle East has been a powder keg for the last 64 years. The problems over there really go back more than 5,000 years. Yet America has been depending on that situation over there for our energy source. How foolish of us. Why have we been taking such chances? We the people have known about this and the government that works for us has certainly known it too. It is a known fact that America is sitting on top of more oil than there is in Saudia Arabia! Had we been drilling here more, say 30 years ago, I believe that gas would be like maybe a dollar a gallon. Boy that would sure help our economy. Right now I think we should leave the batteries for the bunnies. Who can afford forty thousand dollar cars? If the Middle East explodes commerce in America, we will surely come to a stand still. We have depended on fossil fuel for 100 years. We all know what we need. Our own energy source right here in America. Drill.
