Did you choke on the contradiction when you wrote this?

The one single thing that could be done overnight to make at least a little change in the price of gas that nobody seems to mention is to simply get rid of the completely dumbass EPA mandated regional/seasonal blends.

...not to mantion the increased mileage that vehicles get when you take all of those bullsh*t additives out.


My truck is almost a full 20% better on mileage when I run no-additive diesel than when I run the moronic ecohippie blend.

...and as to the original post, oil is the fuel of the past but it is also the fuel of the present.

Is it the fuel of the future? Most likely not but you can't FORCE change. When another source becomes econimocally viable and profitable, it will happen. Until then, it won't, no matter how much the douche bag in the White House talks about it. I don't know why liberals can't seem to get this simple concept through their head.

You can't force technology that doesn't yet exist. Ethanol is the PERFECT example of trying to force something that anybody who knows math at even a 6th grade level can see simply isn't viable. Yet we keep spending billions on it with the result being LESS efficient cars with the stupid ass blends and as a kicker we get higher food prices because the grain is being used elsewhere. Brilliant.

I know this will get shit because its a Wiki article, but there is a lot of good information on the subject here.

Nationalization of oil supplies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most of our oil is on federal land and it's being blocked from being drilled for by the federal government.

Exactly which problem gets solved by giving the government more control over our oil supplies?

The problem that gets solved in the mind of a liberal is that we are another step closer to the full-on government run utopia that they so desperately want.

It is pretty much their answer for everything.



There is a problem somewhere? Nationalize it!!
