I’d like to reiterate that the Democrat’s suppression of drilling for oil and gas in the United States doesn’t make any sense.
Their professed reason is that using fossil fuels hurts the environment, a point which is unproven. So they won’t let American companies drill in America.
So we buy the oil from overseas – and burn it anyway. There is NO reduction in consumption of hydrocarbons because we aren’t drilling here in the U.S.; we consume the same amount of fuel we would if we were drilling our own.
So why not save all that money and create all those jobs by drilling here and now?
