Check out this website from US Geological Society:
There is NO reason our fuel prices have to be this high! In 2005 then-Pres. Bush mandated extraction of oil from reserves found in the Rocky Mtns. Has that occurred? NO. We've dealt with ridiculous prices for years. Environmental groups have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil. Are OPEC countries funding these environmental groups to prevent the US from using the oil we have? Seems possible. There is enough in one well in the northern mid west to provide fuel for the current US demand for 2,041 YEARS... AND The oil people in the US are happy to have some extra $$ from these outlandish prices, they aren't going to try to change anything. The PEOPLE of the US are going to have to make another stand and DEMAND that drilling begin immediately. We MUST break free from the grasp of OPEC.
