    No feed for the corn. Obama wants it to go to ethanol. A little history lesson. Before the car the horse was a cities greatest polluter. Then there where almost riots over feed for the horse vs feed for the people. We have now come full circle back to that. Using what 1.5 gallons of gas to make 1 gallon of the engine killing stuff. And the EPA demanding we use more and more of it.
    Then there is Obama, wanting to starve the car of oil to bring about his magic green jobs to his green communist he blusters about for support and payoff.
    How many Volt batteries where made here in the USA/ How much did we spend on them? How many more solar companies that Bush turned down mind you, but how many more magic green job/pay outs can Obama get away with?

    Drill here and Drill now. and before you green weenie obamapoligist start crying but we now export more, that is on PRIVATE land. We bought Alaska for the Oil and Minerals. Keystone pipeline, drilling off our shores are just a few things Obama could help bring about. Nope He told us before the election he WANT 5$ gas. He puts this Chu Guy in charge that wants 10$ a gallon! Get with it people!

    Drill here, drill now, and use it up so our grandkids are still reliant on foreign oil. Let’s not plan a future where OIL is the reserve, and wind, solar, geothermal, etc. are the main sources of energy.

    Don’t you guys bitch about expensive oil! Thousands and thousands of acadians have to exile themselves to Alberta to give the us cheap and reliable oil and harper wants even more people there!

    and all the rest of the setup, that it would take a MINIMUM of 5 to 7 years "

    Just the discovery of new oil fields is enough to drop the price. And yes we should have started 5 ten years ago! And if Mc was elected we might have and yes prices would be lower right now.

    Peak oil is a myth! We the USA have more oil then the middle East! The How to get to it and refine it gets better every day!But Obama and the green communist do not want the USA to get to it. And So what if in 100 years we use it all. By not using it are we going to bring about the next best thing? Did starving the horse bring about the car? All of the above is what I am saying! bring it on including Nuclear!

    I agree that we haven’t hit peak oil, but we will someday. So doesn’t it make sense to be thinking ahead?

    Harley, even if we accept everything else you say, Neoconman is right. How will even 10 times the oil in the US lower the price at all if it is in the hands of private industry? The reason Venezuela has lower gas prices is the oil industry is nationalized. Our oil companies have shown now interest in lowering prices when they can, because they don’t WANT to. Oil prices will not come down unless oil has some competition from alternative energy sources. You want to watch gas prices drop? Put out a fleet of 50-80mpg cars that sell for $15k or less and watch the prices drop to $2.00 a gallon. Right now, since they know we NEED to buy gas from them, they will keep the prices where they can make the highest profit margin possible without driving people to alternative sources. Kill the electric/hybrid/alternative fuel market, and you’ll see prices skyrocket.

    Obama has weaken the dollar like none before him. Oil is traded in American dollars. Right now our GDP vs dept is at the highest in history. ANYTHING that can boast GDP and bring down dept will lower cost of oil. Having Oil will improve the GDP two fold since it is traded in $ and having more oil fields will give us more to back the $.
    Right now Russia and China are trying to get out of the $ trade. If they do prices will go up even more. If we have our own oil to bring to the world market that deal or the threat there of becomes diminished, lowering oil.
    You guys have been watching to many Sat. Morning Cartoons where the rich oil guy is the evil bad guy.

    What would help the process is more refining capacity (esp. in California). I like the Boone Pickens plan using wind and natural gas, it would save us a bunch and pollute a lot less than conventional gasoline engines.

    @mickey1339

    Agreed, Boone Pickens is on to something. And he, unlike Obama, is not trying to bankrupt coal plants and the like.

    Both under president bush, initiated with a republican controlled congress but both times "

    But they never promised to use the EPA to say, bankrupt the coal industry. They where trying to get some oversight on the green communist movement. Obama is taking them off the chain and turning them lose on our energy producing industry. See the differences?

    Harley,
    That Oil money would still be privately held, with no guarantee that it would flow back into this country’s economy. Oil companies are still posting record profits; why has that not fixed our economy and lowered prices? It’s because all of that profit is going into bank accounts instead of taxes or local economies. Even the money being traded stays on Wall Street. The goal now is not to make a profit and spread it around, it is to increase profit and take more. If executives kept the same percentage of the profit that they did in 1992, gas prices would be well under $2.00 a gallon. Based on their current actions, increasing the amount of domestic oil produced would keep prices the same and increase executive pay, instead of freeze executive pay and lower prices. Then, when there was another shortage, prices would double while executive pay still rose.
    The only way to bring down gas prices without nationalizing the entire industry is to eiher offer competition so people are no longer bound to their product, pass government regulations on how much profit can be used towards salary, or allow Congress or the President sole power to set the price of gasoline and fuel oil. Only the first option is viable in our system. Allow the free market to bankrupt the coal industry – its outdated and dirty anyway – and keep the oil industry in line with the rest of the country’s businesses. Stop demonizing the green energy options and start allowing them to compete on equal footing – if you told me I could ditch my oil heater for a solar panel and wind farm electricity at a fair price, I’d do it, but I don’t have the option right now because it is cost prohibitive.
