Take a good long look at this graph
The numbers don’t lie. Obama can not squirm out of it but the Left Stream Media can and does ignore it. It is the price they want us to pay in the name of Eco-Justice… you, know, one of those Socialist Goals of theirs.

Drill Bits: Is Bush’s Call for More Domestic Drilling the Answer?
President Bush’s speech today calling for domestic oil production—including in off-limits Alaska—has been met with a chorus of doubts that tapping remaining reserves will do anything much anytime soon to ease the energy crunch. That’s pretty much the same reaction the President’s Rose Garden speech on climate change received earlier this year.
The WSJ Econ blog cited a recent Department of Energy report that says drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge might just knock 75 cents off the price of a barrel a few decades hence. We’ve noted before that the amount of oil (and natural gas) that can be easily tapped will provide for only a few years’ domestic consumption.
Of course, we’ve also been taken to task for ignoring the effect that greater domestic production could have at the margin, which could help bring prices down. That seems to be part of the administration’s thinking, as well.

We are now in the first quarter of 2010. The Bush plans to expand domestic drilling dropped the price of gasoline from $4.10 a gallon to a low of $1.60 a gallon in the span of six months.
Now enters the Obama Administration…

Obama blocks offshore drilling
But times change, and on Tuesday, the Obama administration – with gas prices roughly half what they were and many Democrats’ having been swept into office – blocked offshore drilling plans put in place at the last minute by the Bush administration, including plans to open the national outer continental shelf for drilling.
Environmental groups said that they were encouraged by Mr. Salazar’s announcement but that offshore drilling should be banned outright.
This country runs on fossil fuel…
