Republican Elephant Signs: No cap an' trade! Obama's energy plan is socialism! Global warming is still a hoax! C'mon in! The oil's fine!
The fact is, we are a junkie nation. We import more than half the oil we use every day, and every President since 1970 (when we first started using more oil than we produce domestically) has come into office swearing to do something about our dependency on foreign oil.
However, there’s only one thing that will wean us off of foreign oil, and that’s the cost. When gas hits four bucks a gallon, we can’t wait to buy hybrids and can’t give away SUVs. But our drug dealers KNOW that about us, and whenever we start trending towards actually reducing consumption, they just let the price drift back down to three bucks a gallon, and we can’t wait to buy SUVs again, and can’t give away hybrids.
