  •  Energy Indep. Through Fossil Fuels: a Chimera (1+ / 0-)

    If an energy source can be exported, then there is no reason to believe that domestic extraction means domestic use.  The market for oil is a global one with global determination of prices.

    And low oil prices through increased drilling would probably only come if the US decided to nationalize the oil industry and fix prices.  We all know that's not happening since the U.S. is none too fond of oil nationalization as our histories with Iran and Mexico can easily show.
