Is a bitch when the money runs out. China said today that they are going to have to raise gas prices because they are going to lower the amount of subsidies they pay for oil. Add this to the fact that Americans drove 4 billion miles less last month compared to the same time last year and maybe just maybe oil will start to drop. Looks like oil dropped about $4 a barrel today.
When running at full tilt, Thunder Horse alone will increase overall U.S. oil and gas production by 3.6 percent. Add BP's Atlantis platform that started up last year, and the boost grows to 6.4 percent.
Analysts have said that is likely the biggest production increase from just two locations that the U.S. has seen in a decade.
Add on ANWAR, the Rocky Mountains, and the east and west coastlines, and we can tell the middle east to kiss our oil-rich asses!
Idiot extremist will argue this!
Bring on the nuke power!
