Yes, and those same arguments were true for thepast 15 years.So people ask the question? Whatis our federal energy policy?Obviously,you've never lived for an extended time outside the USA,in an oil exporting country.My friend, OPECis addicted to selling oil. And some key member s ofOPEC are strong US allies, against some regimes whowant to undermine our great country ( Iran, Iraq,Libya, etc).We can't cut off the royal family ofSaudi Arabia, can we???Do you know how much firepower we have in place in Saudi?Not to mentiontheir island buddy, bahrain. Or Kuwait.Thesecountries depend pretty much solely on oil to feed theirpeople, and maintain their lavish lifestyles.Haveyou visited this region? Do you know their new foundstandard of living? Do you think they want to loosethis?Think about it.Then you'll understand that theUS oil industry is on its own.
