We are not the largest consumer

To whomever you are that is saying we consume more Oil than anyone else. Look again. China actually has that one zipped up. China uses more Oil, and oil products than we ever thought about. They held their prices low and that is a part of what pushed them higher. I do believe that if we would check into our own natural resources, we could make it without OPEC. Coal is an awesome source. It not only is better for the environment, it is also an awesome economic boost. The people coal employs would help the economy get back on it's feet big time. Coal miners enjoy their vacations etc, and guess where they go..... the beach, at least this coal miners daughter remembers our summer vacations and NC was always one place we went every year. Oil isn't our only fossil fuel... We need to encourage the oil companies that are searching for other means outside of Oil, by purchasing their products, and writing them letting them know we want alternative.
