How much of this oil will America get? I hear Alaska ships plenty to China and Japan for a larger price. Apparently the oil coming out of the ground is not making a dent in prices at the pump where we desperatly need it. When will these politicians ever stop depending on other countries for every-thing? We have more oil than anybody and we are buying foreign oil, borrowing money from foreigners plus our manufactoring jobs go to other countries. These are the issues we need to get resolved by responsible leadership which we are in serious doubt at all levels of government. It is so disheartning to see our leaders conduct themselves in such child like mentality.
