I think it is time we tap into our own oil reserves and stop depending on foreign oil.

You ought to bew able to pick up a used car that gets over 30mpg very easily. Some of the newer small cars approach 50mpg. Basically we are being social engineered into smaller vehicles. Obama is just fine with expensive gas. It's part of the plan.
Even if we developed the considerable resources available to North America (way more than Saudi Arabia has) it will take a good long while to get it all going, I wouldn;t plan on lower gas prices any time soon. If Obama wins, it will get even worse and whoever wins, the environmental lobby will fight any increase tooth and nail.
It's a lose lose proposition, so adapt or die.

You guys, and me, with generators: how long do you think a gas powered generator is going to run when gas will literally be unavailable after about a week of a "lights out" situation?
Yeah, I have one. But I also know that I am not gonna get much use out of it.
