    Actually Obama said oil imports will be cut by a third in the next 10 years not 30 years.

    Over half of the petroleum consumed by the United States is imported, with Canada and Mexico the two largest suppliers, followed by Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.

    More than two-thirds of offshore leases in the Gulf of Mexico are sitting idle, neither producing oil and gas, nor being actively explored by the companies who hold the leases, according to a Department of Interior report to be released Tuesday.

    Those inactive swaths of the Gulf could potentially hold more than 11 billion barrels of oil and 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, Interior said in the report obtained by The Associated Press.

    No kidding! Hard to drill when there is a ban and only 3 permits issued in the last year.
    It is one thing to have a lease, one still needs a permit in order to drill.

    Looks like Obama is officially kicking off his 2012 campaign.
