To allow our possible opportunity to recover economically, while watching inflation, due to rising fuel prices, dampen as a result of the people of Libya wanting to drive their own bus, is not much different that going broke while eating out in restaurants, three meals a day, meanwhile, back at home, the fridge and pantry are stuffed to capacity.
America owns, in the ground on its mainland, more oil than is waiting to be pumped from the ground of all those countries whose civil unrest will drive our own turmoil at home. To not pump our own oil, while supplying the world as well, for profit, is nothing short of stupid or deliberate. Either way, change is in order. And the sooner the better.
