Our economy would be so much better off if we'd domestically drill for oil. Why won't we drill in the Gulf of Mexico? The Russians are drilling off the coast of Cuba. Why won't we drill in Anwar? I work with guys from Alaska. There is nothing out there. It is a barren chunk of ice. The price of oil would drop, our dependence on foreign oil would decrease, and it would buy us more time to try developing alternative sources of fuel.
