Isn't it time to start drilling for oil in this country? The U.S. has been held hostage far too long by the Arab nations.
There is plenty of oil in this country that is untapped. A few environmentalists have shut down any future production in the U.S. with their cries of destroying the environment.
I don’t believe them.
Furthermore, why is it OK for foreign nations to drill (polluting their environment?) just so people in the U.S. can have their oil.
It makes sense to me that this country should be self-reliant and not beholden to countries that hate the U.S. Those countries have the upper hand and can do a lot of damage to this country, namely, by raising their prices for oil. When the price of oil goes up, gas goes up, groceries go up, services go up.
Those people on fixed incomes just get poorer and poorer. It needs to stop.
This country needs to start drilling here — now.
