so if Obama is against taking away the gas tax, and against drilling, and refining, and oil shale processing?

What is he "for" exactaly?

and that 68 million acres that "could" be drilled is useless in most of the ocean so don’t give me that crap

He drives around DC with a cartell of chevy Tahoes and uses more energy in his campaign via bus and plane than I will my whole life!!

What makes him qualified to aleviate our pain at the pump!!

    OHH you must be a racist!~ you said bad things about obama!
    To your point now. I think the Dems are in big trouble on this gas price deal. Latest poll has 70% of americans saying drill drill drill and 53% saying drill anwar. The dems have lived by their eviro supporters now they gonna die by them.
    Sad thing is most Americans would be happy with a comprimise of drill now while we develop alternatives but the enviro whackos wont consider it as judged by the insults thrown here by even suggesting drilling.

    If you’re experiencing pain at the pump it’s your own fault for buying the wrong car. Do you conservatives want the government to fix all your problems for you?

    Also, we’ve had it good, maybe we should be leaving some of this oil for future generations who don’t drive 16 miles per gallon SUV’s.

    HE LIKE MOST LIBERALS WANTS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO WALK MORE, RIDE BIKES MORE AND USE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION MORE EVEN IF IT IS VERY INCONVIENT FOR YOU AND TAKES YOU 2-3 TIMES AS LONG TO GET WHERE YOU ARE GOING. HE IS HAPPY THAT THE PRICE OF OIL HAS RISEN. HE HOPES IT WILL FORCE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO LIVE LIKE THE LIBERALS WANT US TO LIVE.

    gonna be a lotta change and within four years things will be a lot like zimbabwe but way bigger. instead of states we will operate from tribles and get back to basics. new flag, new language and new anthym plus texas can be outfitted with traditional african animals like elephants and lions. that would be a big change. who is to say which way is better. but change is change.

    Soon the only gas we will refine will be after eating beans.

    If what you said was true, and I know it isn’t, let’s just take them each and go over them, point by point, shall we?

    Taking away the gas tax will help US, the consumer, pay less for gas, thereby alleviating the price at the pump immediately and significantly. Good start.

    Drilling, refining and processing more oil does not solve our problem. The effects of this will not be felt for 8-14 years by most energy consultants estimations. How does that help anyone right now?

    All politicians use vehicles that are safe and expedient. Obama is no different than anyone else in public life.

    The "worthless" ocean is anything but that. It’s our source of life for the entire planet. Despoiling it like oil companies tend to do when they go drilling for oil just poisons us in the end.

    You know, these kinds of simple questions tend to sort themselves out rather easily when you…think them through. Try it sometime. It might help.

    taking the gas tax away wouldn’t do squat, you take away the tax and then guess what companies like exon and shell will just charge you the same amount anyway and pocket the profit. oil execs have all said thats what they would do if the tax was ever taken away

    A mathematical calculation, what would happen to the price of gasoline if drilling everywhere in the US would be opened, arrived at 1 cent per gallon less.
    That would destroy the last bit of nature we have left for our kids to see – 1 cent.
    If you pump up your tires, you can save 4 cent tomorrow.
    And if you get a modern car with modern technology, like my BMW, you laugh at the pump about the guys in their yesterday Trucks and SUV’s. I drive 450 miles with a 12 gallon tank, 225 horses on the road and comfortable as my sofa.

    There’s a concern among the left that if we continue to pursue new oil resources, we’ll never get off fossil fuel. They are probably right.

    One thing most people do not realize is how close we really are to solar becoming effective and affordable. Probably less than 10 years and that’s how long it is going to take to drill and get new oil anyway.

    There are a lot of people that can`t understand how we ran out of oil here in the USA. Well, here`s the answer: It`s simple…nobody bothered to check the oil. They didn`t know we were getting low. And of course the reason for that is geographical. We keep all the oil in Texas, Oklahoma,and Alaska, but all the dipsticks are in Washington, D.C. :-)
