Back in the early 1970's I remember reading in Time Magazine that the US has enough oil to leat itself 300 years.

That's probably about the trillions of hidden shale oil barrels below the Wyoming, Utah, Colorado landscapes. It's shale oil, or kerogen, it's not the same as crude. It also takes up way more energy in refining compared to crude, and there are issues with the drilling in those areas. Mind you though, I wouldn't mind if we were to tap into our shale oil reserves, but it would be an alternative fuel, and you'd be admitting that crude is really limited in the US for our consumption.

people realize that foreign countries are the main proponent to drill american oil? sure exxon mobil is onboard, but so is companies like BP and others. they are using the "american oil for americans" mantra against our best wishes. we would be depleting our reserves for nothing. assuming they get the yields they suspect they'll just lessen production elsewhere or hold it offshore, they are NOT interested in dropping the price to the consumer.

If we drill here our president won't have any reason to murder the citizens of the Middle East. Then how would he fill his day?
