Of course he's pushing the use of MORE oil. I'm not so sure the costs would even go down. Especially in several years! Obviously we need help NOW, but that's not going to happen. That being said, I'd love to see the years of effort and resources go toward perfecting other methods of fueling our lives altogether. That would, in large, take away our dependency on oil from other countries...would it not? Wouldn't it end a lot of fighting? Isn't this the perfect time to say "our dependency on oil needs to become a thing of the past." If we are a nation that is innovative and forward-thinking then I would think that we should be moving FORWARD and not BACKWARD. I want our leader to embrace new technology and to be forward-thinking. It would be so great to have a cleaner fuel that is very inexpensive (and easy to replenish) that we all can have access to. I'm just so sick of the oil issue and want it to go away already. Sorry, I will get off the soapbox now. I just had to react.
