If oil prices kept up with inflation we should be paying over $6 a gallon.
Yeah but who wants to add inflation? Soon i will have to load up the back of the ML with dollar bills just to pay for a tank of gas

Who uses cash anymore? Its all about plastic..

Enough already about ANWR. There is 6 months of oil there that would take 10 years to develop. Please use your god-given gift of reason in whatever measure you got doled out to you.

And I suppose you're a geologist and an expert, right? You got all the answers from some article you read, right? Ok, sorry my bad. You're right, we shouldn't explore other opportunities.

"Your" implies pocession of a noun
"You're" is a contraction for you are
Before you start calling someone a "fucking idiot" you might want to pick up an English grammar book and study the usage of your and you're.

Also, you're missing the point on gas prices. The petrolium companies know that people will buy gas regardless of how much it costs. You have to have gas for your car to drive to work right? So, why charge $1.50 a gallon when people will pay $3.00+ for it? The problem isn't so much supply as the corporations bending you over a barrel, pun intended.

You can increase the supply as much as you want but if the petrolium company decides not to lower the price than increased drilling does nothing.

Yeah, the USGS site.

I'm sure you'd call it government propaganda though, as it doesn't support your position.

Six months if depleted all at once. But who depletes a filed all at once? Instead, we tap thousands of fields a little at a time. So adding another trickle to the stream would be nice.

The big unknown is what will happen when the Russian kleptocracy finally allows industry to tap their far-east almost totally undeveloped hydrocarbon resources in Siberia. That's a pipleine away from China. Or a major war away from China. They do have an historic claim to Siberia.
