We are supposedly going to overtake Saudi Arabia in oil production as the worlds biggest oil producer within this decade. All thanks to fracking. I think we MAY be capable of seeing this happen considering the sheer amount of shale under our ground. But, I wonder if that process will eventually become restrictive seeing that it's an incredibly invasive process on the land, the water, and the people living around the fracking areas.

No Fracking Site

Here's an eye opening documentary on fracking (if you haven't seen it before):

Weve also exported more oil than we imported for the first time since something like 1950.. So why is gas still at over 3 bucks a gallon.
Oh and has anyone else noticed that gas prices dropped steadily for a couple of weeks, then stopped dropping on Nov 6th.. coincidence?

Appreciate that. This is more about the fracking process and how it interferes with the headline. I don't think the process of fracking will continued to be allowed as freely as it is now; especially over the next 5 years or so... unless of course they clean up the process itself.

So what are you proposing? Let the ME continue to supply the oil? Or let us try to become a bit self reliant? Either way we're screwed as per who is polluting the world.

Won't matter in a few years time because once all the underground is so destroyed from all the fracking and the ground sinks cracking roads , no one is going to be able to drive on them anyway.

Towns collapse, people get poisoned.

Fracking is bad, period.

Can't they just get the oil from Siberia instead?

There is a super-quarry in our area that is close to reaching approval to double its size; we have counties a hundred km away protesting it, and for their own area, not just sympathy for closer neighbours. As with any majour excavation, it has bad, far-reaching side-effects.

Maybe we have exported More CORN OIL, But the Black Gold. No.
We still have a 50% Dependancy on Foreign Imports.
