How long does it take for oil from a new drilling rig that just started drilling to get to the gas station?

People I’ve worked with in various oil companies like ExxonMobil, Chevron, ARCO, BP, and Union Oil, tell me its about 10 years considering all of the time it takes to find the oil, build all of the infrastructure like drilling rigs and pipelines, abide by govt red tape, and for the refinery to process and get the gasoline to the gas station.

    Yup. And this is why I am so annoyed at Clinton for stopping oil production because "in ten years alternative energy will be filling the gap."

    Yes, 10 years is what I heard also.
