I know an oil tanker captain that was carrying oil during the "crisis". At the time, there were tankers offshore being told to wait.

How is Obama to be smart, or dumb, for not utilizing powers that are not granted him?
That said....it certainly would e wise to buy low and shore up reserves.

Or we could just go completely fossil fuel independent and here and cut ties with the ME since Texas and South Dakota alone now are shown to have as much oil as all of our fuel masters OPEC control......
Then we wouldnt have to rely on them and it would take a huge chunk of our own money out of their pockets......not to mention it would bolster our economy to the most wealthy its ever been.........
But nah, why do that, it would only better the lives of every American on US soil........
