Three ways to oil independence

A friend sent this video about oil independence to me and I found it interesting. I don't know if it's true or not, and this is not a political blog, but it is interesting.

Do you mean to say, "it wasn't political but now it is"? -Matt

Fascinating, so wonderful to not know who is scamming us...and how easy it would be to get out of the corner we are getting pushed into.

On a side not, but related to this issue:
I am so tired of hearing people talk about Europe's cost of gas...hello, has anyone traveled the small countries of Europe? The cities that you can walk around. They differences are so vast it's ridiculous to compare. Population density, urban planing, population size, economics, are all part of the equation too. Ride a bike and add how many hours to your commute...which translates to a how many hour work day...which translates to lack of family time...which has its consequences...on and on the ripple effect.

The simplistic answers to complex problems astounds me.

As for Newt...I like him most of the time...but for the "Republicans" to come out and act like they got smart answers...NOW. Is so anti-climatic they had their chance to prove they had smart, economic sustainable answers...now they are going to get the boot. They shot themselves in the foot with the last 8 years of mess on all issues.

I'm afraid we have all become more political with the price of gas, and everything associated with it; which is eveything!!!
I agree with you Eric, the Republicans had their chance and I think were looking at a Democratic President.
