Possable solution, short or long term, what difference would it make and will it ease the prices of petrol in the US & other Nations?

I'm all for increased drilling & refinery activity, so long as it brings the gas prices down at least $1 American. Some thing needs to be done to offset the riseing prices, and increase distribution.

Could this be a better alternative to putting more wells in Alaska? What happens when another rig is destroyed by a hurricane, what is the eniornmental impact then? Prices would rise only that much more, to compensate for the costs of construction.

FONSI/Leases Off-shore Oil and Gas Activities
Environmental Assessments are used as a basis for
determining whether or not approval of the proposals constitutes major
Federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human
environment in the sense of NEPA Section 102(2)(C). A FONSI is prepared
in those instances where MMS finds that approval will not result in
significant effects on the quality of the human environment.
