G.W.Bush tried in his first year in office to get an energy package through congress that would have allowed more domestic drilling and would have built more refineries but the democrats would not allow it. We would be in a very different situation had that gone through.
We have enough oil in Alaska and off the coast of Florida to supply most of our needs and can't get to it. All you hear about is we need to cut this and do without that when all we need to do is drill and refine. When is this country going to wake up to reality.
