I,for one, know that we here in the U.S.realize we pay less for a gallon of fuel than those in many other countries.
What irritates me is that we here are under the thumb of those countries that we import the bulk of our oil from when we have much more oil in the ground and off shore that we are told exists.
Another irritant is that whenever the Political landscape changes in these foreign countries for whatever reason, the price of oil goes up, even on that oil that is already here in the U.S.
Maybe we are finally starting to realize we can be free of the need to import the majority of our oil as evidenced by the increase increase drilling here in our own backyard.
I hope so.
