Ok, so in school they teach you that fuel comes from dinasurs.
how come all the fuel is in places like the middle east and alaska and gulf of mexico.
How come there isnt alot of fuel all around.
There might be a way to debunk this theory and if there is please tell me.
Also i read in the previous thread that most of our oil is in the rocky mountains. So why dont be save troops and go out west?
