It's over. Obama failed miserably to teach Americans how to think.


- Rasmussen Update: Obama Doomed -

This just goes to show you that you can't fool all the people all the time.

Truth be told if Obama lifts the moratorium on offshore drilling then the price would fall

just like it did back in July 2008. Thank you President George W. Bush.

Go to GasBuddy.com and look at the 5 Year Chart.

This just shows that 62% of people are clueless about the economy of gas.

And the gas price dropped in the last half of 2008 because the economy tanked...no demand = low prices.

No offence OP
I am going to have to call straw man on this arguement
trouble is with out refineries you can't do a thing with that oil
when was the last time the US built a refinery?
the 70s?

there is enough oil, on shore in the bakun field and on the north slope to drop the price of oil to nothing and fuel a real US economy with out off shore drilling..
but it isn't going to happen

I suspect this election, as they all seem to be lately, will get decided by VOTE FRAUD

They may think it will lower prices but it won't. The US nearly doubled its oil drilling operations under Obama, and you can see that didn't keep prices low. The simple fact is that the US has only a small part of the world's petrol resources. Even if we kept all domestically-produced oil for US consumption, we'd still have to import a very substantial portion of the petrol we use; the result would be that world pricing, not US-only pricing, would prevail (since when have domestic oil companies been charitable institutions? For that matter, how many domestic oil companies are completely domestic and without any foreign ownership or operations?).

If there is a major accident on the highway, should we shut down the highway?

Absolutely spot on!

We do need to drill. Why Obama didnt take the Canadian oil deal,speaks volumes,on how he has pandered to the "green" initiative,and all its dirty money.

We have been down this road before.

July 2008, gas was $4.10 a gallon.

President George W. Bush lifted the moratorium on offshore drilling.

The speculators swung into action and forced the price of gas down to $1.61

in just a few months.

I have history on my side. You lose.

- Presidential Leadership -

They found a way around that.

Instead of building a new refinery just enlarge the existing refineries.

Here is the chart on gas in July 2008 showing the plunge after President George W. Bush

showed leadership.

Some would argue our need for oil is NOT worth the possibility of that happening again. After all oil has monetary value whereas life has Intrinsic value. It is priceless.

Yeah, why risk it?

Lets just all go live with the Amish.

I wonder what percentage of Americans would approve of that?

Here's an idea. Why don't we evolve past needing petrol mud to power our lives? The whole idea is archaic. Sure some oil tycoons will have to suffer their fortunes to move past this old world fuel source, but personally, I couldn't care less. They've had decades to adopt and push new tech, but they keep beating that same old dead horse with "There's no better fuel source."

Wrong. There's no better source because these "tycoons" ostracize and/or kill anyone that comes up with something better.

again...another "oil" thread where no one holds the megacorporations responsible for our high gas prices. tens of billions of dollars in record profits each year, catastrophic spills, hundreds of millions of dollars spent worldwide in lobbying and outright bribery....and then what....THE LIBERALS ARE TO BLAME!!!

That is one of the most ignorant and naive comments I have ever seen on this site. How can you even begin to compare an oil spill to a traffic accident!?! There are NO similarities to those two situations.

Oil is an awful source of fuel. It is not clean burning, is expensive to refine into something useable, and hurts our environment everywhere it goes. If 62% of likely voters (because thats who Rassmussen Reports actually polls, not ALL Americans) agree with this than they clearly are in need of some real education on the issue of climate change and the effect ripping natural resources out of the ground and burning them has on this planet.

That is all.

We need Republican leadership back in the White House.

This is the face of presidential leadership. Raise your hand if you miss President Bush.

All of you know that domestic production of oil has increased under Obama....right???


Ignorance is curable...stupidity isn't...make the right choice.

We need new LEADERSHIP in the White House,there is no denying that.

As for Bush being there,well I will leave that to Republicans wanting that.

Crude oil the best fuel we have right now and it's not going anywhere.

Obama is already running away from his ridiculous Algae solution.

Charles Krauthammer can't stop laughing about that one.
