    Yeah, we don’t need alternative fuels.

    Wrong comic: this is Ramirez. Though, amazingly, I agree with it.

    We put ourselves in this pickle by perpetually having stupidly low gas taxes and further clinching our dependence.

    ^ Until we see how things shake out in Saudi Arabia, using our SPR now would be ill advised. Do you think we’re as foolish as you?

    RV says: If [Saudi Arabia] stops producing then 1 day or 1000 days it won’t make a difference!

    Please tell us again how brilliant you are.

    “America’ s Natural Gas” is inundating us with commercials pointing out they’re the “good guys”. I’ll bet if you go to their web site they won’t discuss “fracking”, just like they ignore it in their ads. “Gasland” is a nice documentary that shows only PART of the problem with these nice “natural gas” folks. Yes, they also used nuclear power- with an effort to get gas out by fracking with a nuke, but the gas was too radioactive to use.

    the SPR is for emergencies such as time of (HOT) wars. this situation is the creation of the eco-Idiots and Liberals who have blocked domestic production of oil/gas for decades.

    They continue in denial that the modern commercial world economy runs on fossil fuel.

    “alternative fuels” use fossil fuels to manufacture equipment and they are inefficient and sometimes harmful…more so than carbon emission.

    If America could have done what was needed since 1980, we would not be 60% or more DEPENDENT on unstable enemies with Foreign OilFields, and a Gang such as OPEC to gouge us at every turn and DAMAGE our economy, and endanger our national security.

    RV: Gas would shoot up to $200 a barrel… You would see double digit inflation on every item you buy… think of that as a 15% increase in tax on the poor working class that can afford it the least. Employers that were thinking of adding to their workforce wouldn’t do so, stalling any economic recovery. Folks would have to decide whether to put gas in their cars to get to their jobs or fall behind in their mortgages (if you remember correctly, this is one of the factors that led to the mortgage meltdown in 2008 when oil hit $150/barrel. Or do you think the economic downturn was just a coincidence?) The list goes on and on…

    I don’t understand how you fail to see this.

    (I’m not saying I don’t wish all the peoples of the world Democracy. Just that there are certain ramifications to global uncertainty, something some here refuse to even consider.)

    For once Churcillisright, Saudi Arabia has 1/5 of the world’s oil reserves.

    If the monarchy was to fall it would trigger a worldwide recession.

    And I would have to live on those 300 cans of food I have and the dinners in 2 freezers.
