While it is true that we have oil that is off limits to oil companies (ANWR and 
such) it is not true that allowing drilling in those areas will lower gas cost. 
It will take years to extract oil in these "off-limits" areas and oil companies 
will not drop the cost unless forced to do so. Politicians are supported by big 
business such as the oil companies and so it is unlikely that politicians will 
do anything to force a reduction. Even if the oil companies are allowed to tap 
the "off-limits" reserves, that will only supply the nations thirst for oill 
for a couple of years. The bottom line is that we have reached the world wide 
half way point in oil extraction. From this point on it is a matter of reduced 
production that will only get worse. We will have to find an alternative to 
  What this will mean for our old trucks and the gasoline (diesel) motors is a 
very good question. It is hard to imagine my 51 3/4 ton with an electric motor

  The problem is indeed as much or more the government than the oil companies, 
but I question that 9% profit margin for the oil companies. The oil companies 
are making record profits these days. When the oil companies were asked by the 
government about gouging and the record profits they replied that they woud use 
the money for exploration. Yea, right, exploration of the best off-shore bank
