    Drilling for oil

    Does anyone else agree with me that we should drill for oil in Alaska so we could pay 25 cents a gallon and we wouldnt have to get it from the middle east countries that can charge us whatever the hell they want

    First off, gas will never be 25 cents a gallon. Secondly, there is not enough oil in Alaska to provide fuel for the U.S. for even 10 years, so you would have to go right back to using foreign oil. Thirdly, North America pays WAY less than anywhere else in the world.

    The prime area they are looking to open up for drilling is protected (I believe as a national park) and is a caribou grazing area.

    IMO we need to save our oil......which is what we are doing. If tensions in the middle east go so bad that we can't get our oil from there, and we don't have any of our own, we are quite screwed.......

    American drilling in Alaska is great for Canadians. You don't think we let it pass thru our borders or seas for free do you. It's a monopoly situation for us, you can't get the stuff home without going thru us and we know you are hooped. In this market, we're the only game in town .

    Talking

    Point taken Chica. As far as the carabou etc.. I quoted a job in Maine this year that was on a fast track to get started because if they didn't they were going to have to shut the job down for 6 months or something because of the soft shell turtle mating season they paid millions extra because of it and it would cost millions of dollars more in fines if they weren't done because of it.

    The ever precious soft sheel turtle must not be disturbed when it is mating!

    True the soft shell turtle is a very private creature and does not give public displays of affection!
