I just filled my gas tank up, I should have filled up this morning, in just 4 hours gas here went 10 cents a gallon. This morning it was $3.49 and now its$3.59 a gallon. I know you folks on the West Coast are paying more, my answer to you fire those in charge or move. Anyway, WHY THE HELL ARE WE NOT DRILLING IN THIS COUNTRY? We have as much if not more oil below the ground and off our shores than the Middle East. For crying out loud, will someone please wake up and allow us to use our own resources. We have oil, natural gas, coal and the ability to build clean secure nuclear plants. You want cleaner energy fine good me too, but until there is a good choice of anything that is cleaner we need fossil fuel. Continue developing solar, wind, wave or even cow pie energy. Until then someone please explain to me why we arnt drilling. Not only will it help us become more secure here at home, lower the price and stabilize the price of oil on the world market, it will put thousands of people in the country to work. Mybe even tens of thousands of folks. I dont want to hear about the treehuggers either, there are far more of us than there are then. Let them throw their little fit and lets move this country forward.
