This is a fiction of the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy. If it were true, we'd own Kuwait after Desert Storm and gas would be $2 per gallon now.

If you want oil, drill Anwar and the Gulf Coast and build some refineries.

Why would the oil companies want gas to sell for $2 a gallon?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
