Fwd: ANWAR

"Just received this from my 85 year old grandma. I'm trying to find something online to prove this isn't correct. Either way, it is so offensive when I'm one of the green, liberal, democrats they are talking about." -Kelly

Ahhh... So it's the democrats who are raising gas prices. Thanks for these facts, Kelly's grandma!

Snopes is still investigating.

Whatever Snopes finds, theres a few important things to note:

1) As we all know Republicans had 6 years of total control over government and didn't do anything in regards to ANWR. To lay this totally on Democrats is another Republican cop out. And that line at the end about Al Gore claiming that we should inflate gas to $5 a gallon: pure bull.

2) John McCain himself is currently opposed to drilling in ANWR.

3) The oil in ANWR, even the most generous estimates, is simply not that plentiful. It would take 5-10 years to get it online and into world supply. Whatever came out of there would reduce our oil imports but only a percent or two. Plus, we don't have any more refinery capacity anyway, which means that it would simply sit in the pipeline and not actually help with gas prices.

4)Suppose we drill and add more oil to world supply, thus (very very slighty) reducing the price point of gas. What's to stop other nations from cutting back their own production in order to get back to the previous, profitable equilibrium? Nothing, thats what.

The bottom line is that ANWR is no magic bullet. Drilling there may be necessary but to claim that it will solve all, or even some, of our energy problems is pure delusion.

Adding to the above comment

4.2) What all these Third Reicher's seem to think is that is once all this oil is pulled up that it's magically going to stay here in this country, somehow translating into 30 cents a gallon gas.
The oil companies don't give two shits about AMERICA, American Pride, The American Economy, NASCAR or Toby Keith. All the oil that gets pulled up goes on the WORLD market, Conserva-tards, meaning the FREE MARKET.
If you want cheap domestic-only oil , might I suggest you move to Venezuela, or don't you hate it when "BIG GOVERNMENT" comes to help you out?
