  •  We already used up our oil (1+ / 0-)

    There used to be a good amount of oil under Pennsylvania, Texas, Oklahoma, etc. but we started sucking it up over a hundred years ago in larger and larger amounts...reached peak oil in the early 70s. Basically the only way we can support "the American way of life" now and for the foreseeable future is by dependency on foreign oil...no way around it. We're scraping the bottom of  the barrel for domestic oil.
