Would you support oil drilling in Alaska?

I would. Its huge amounts of oil that would drop prices dramaticially.

I would rather wait to see what china has to offer for the pipeline, seeing that their demand will only increase in the years to come.

1) The oil won't reach the market for nearly 10 years. It will surely not help you next winter. 2) The amount of Oil in Alaska (10 to 36 billion barrels) is quite insignificant compared to the oil reserves of OPEC. If OPEC didn't change their prices to counter new US oil production, the effect on prices would be maybe 10 cents at most. 3) Your goal of "energy independence" would be affected in no way, because the Saudis produce more efficiently and can underprice anyone on the market. If you want to become independent from the Middle East: try to save energy and spend more money on alternative energies. OK. There will be no change as long as oil barons rule the US... Go on and destroy your nature. Alaska is far away from the "mainland"...

Meh, your country, ruin what you want. I doubt it'll do you as much good as you reckon, though; oil prices will keep going up, oil demand will keep going up, oil reserves will keep going down... oil's nearing death as a fuel, it's time to find something new to use.

Bah, that's not even half-way up the wall, let alone through the roof!

Do you really think that if huge quantities of oil were discovered in the Alaskan wildlife reserve that they would lower the price instead of pocketing the profit?

I am waiting to see if Bush and his Oil Baron cronies will actually support the swtich to E-85 and biodiesel or try to bury it.

Think of what it would mean if hte US switched to a fuel that used only 15% gasoline and the rest alcohol. That would reduce dependancy on oil for distilling into gasoline by 85%.

And biodisel is not made from petroleum at all. The original diesel engine invented by Rudolf Diesel was designed to burn vegetable oil.

I'll be anti-british for a moment: But england is practically walkable in a single day and still get home for noon tea. :D And with cars like the mini-coop, a half a tank of gas will last you a good year if you plan it right. pleased.gif

It would also reduce pollution.
