I agree completely. All we know is that it will lead us into the weeds.

Mark, we burn 500 million gallons of gas every day. Best estimates have
the ANWR meeting this demand for a whopping 9 months.

Seems like a lot doesn't it? Well, to put things in perspective, when I fill
my oil tank (I use kerosene to heat my home) it's a lot of money for
something that isn't too much more than one cubic yard worth. It's hard to
believe, looking at the 275 gallon tank. How about delivered bottled water?
What, only one cubic foot for how much money? No wonder city delivered
water rates have gone up so much. Heck, what's a few cents more for a cubic
yard of water when a lot of people spend almost $ for only less than one
cubic foot of water?
I remember when the Alaskan pipeline was proposed critics said the slopes
would provide at most 10 years. Well, we've gone 3X that and they're still
There's also a new find in the Gulf of Mexico predicted to hold trillions of
barrels, and it'll start producing about three years from now. I think that
announcement did more to drive the price of gasoline down more than anything
When one sees that ugly looking Nitro from Dodge you know America isn't
serious about curbing consumption.

So, how's the ol' Prius doing?
I'm certainly not the OT police, but I did want to point out (relevant to a
contention earlier in this thread) how certain topics are never going to
lead to on-topic discussions. In many auto fora the "hot buttons" are
synthetic vs. dino oil and DRLs. Here, any discussion of gasoline production
or of politics in general tend to go this way.
Whether it's a bad thing I leave to the individual. I'm just sayin'....

I'm just glad I'm not the only one just sayin'.... Maybe it's a
Mike/Michael thing. ;-)
