Drilling here, with us becoming energy independent, would force prices down for the millions overseas still using kerosene, if they can get it. They might be able to stop cutting forests down. We did. One would think the greenies would like that.
Related is the fact that the Dept. of Energy is hampering drilling,here, while Obama lends money to Brazil to drill in waters deeper than the DP spill, off Brazil, telling them we will be their best customer. I hope Romney brings that up.
