    There is no immediate answer. There needs to be a comprehensive and well thought out plan that includes all of the above.

    there are immediate answers but the American public wants to debate about them instead and by the time they decide to act upon them their fate is already determined...Yes there needs to be a comprehensive plan but lets solve TODAY's problems TODAY....lets plan for the future so we dont repeat those problems again

    Well, I would rather see 36,000 new jobs created than lose another 36,000 jobs. I would bet the 36,000 people that got a job have more hope today than they did a month ago.

    I agree, but I have not seen an administration willing to enact such a policy. However, I donít put all the blame on the Gov. Most Americans are not willing to make the sacrifices it would take to significantly reduce our dependency. They want it to be something easy and without impact on them, and right now, it canít be. Most people claim they want to reduce our use of, and dependency on, foreign oil, but only if it doesnít cost them any extra money. So, until the average American is willing to support a comprehensive change in energy policy, nothing is going to change. We have only ourselves to blame.

    All we have to do is to start "talking" about drilling and prices will go down.

    It has happened before.


    BTW--5 oil rigs are far less intrusive to the landscape than 500 wind mills, and produce far more benefits.

    When, Please privide a source or is this just more right wing propagrama you have dreamed up.

    From the AP:

    The 574 million acres of federal coastal water that are off-limits are believed to hold nearly 18 billion barrels of undiscovered, recoverable oil and 77 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to the Interior Department.


    If we assume it will take 5 years to get the first drop of oil out of the ground and into our gas tanks, that the fields discovered have a useful life of 20 or 30 years from that point, and that we will be able to collect every single barrel of oil that is projected to be there (not a certainty by any means), we are looking at an incremental increase in domestic production of ~700 million barrels per year, on average. The U.S. is expected to consumer 7.45 billion barrels of oil in 2008, so 700 million represents about 9% of our consumption.
    Given that world demand for oil is rising so much, the offshore oil we may be able to drill out of the ground would have little impact on gas prices because the oil market is a worldwide exchange. If we just had a U.S. oil market, then yes, it would have a decent impact, but that is simply not the case.
    As a result, it is hard to see how more offshore drilling would impact gas prices at the pump in any measurable way.

    Nah! We don't need no stinking domestic production and the jobs it would create. Let's just continue to be totally dependent on the Middle East. They always seem to look out for our best interests.
