We are being held hostage by people in the Middle East that hate us when we have plenty of resources right here at home. Yes I know people in Europe are paying twice what we are. SO? Let me tell you why that's different. The U.S. is much larger geographically, than Europe. Things are more spread out here unless you are in the heart of a large city. Most of us aren't. The rest of us are in suburbs surrounding large cities, and in small towns and rural communities around the country. And we commute to where we need to go. Should we be more conservative with our energy usage? Maybe. But we have the resources right here in our country to last the next hundred years - at least - and that should give us plenty of time to develop other types of energy and not be dependent on anyone else.

Canada has oil. Canada can sell oil to the U.S. Canada likes us, for the most part. So why was the president over there in Brazil pledging money to them to help them develop their oil resources? Why was he telling them he would love the U.S. to be their biggest customer? WTF?
I am sorry that Europeans pay what they do for gas. But if we don't have do, and we don't, why should we? WHY ARE WE?
