I have written about the realities of drilling in ANWR as well as the realities of drilling in the restricted areas off our shores. A couple days ago, Barack Obama addressed the offshore drilling meme currently being trotted out by the likes of John McCain and our very own Michele Bachmann.



Of course people are going to support drilling off our shores if they think it is going to yield a dramatic drop in the price they pay in gasoline. Unfortunately, every indicator is that it will NOT have and affect on gas prices.

    Actually, it's time you paid attention. The Saudis agreed to increase oil production by 300K barrels a day & prices fell by $7 a barrel in a week. Imagine the effect that promising to increase production by 2.8 million barrels a day would have.
