A headline on Drudge Report this morning about World Oil production got me to do a little research.
US consumption is presently about 18.5 billion barrels per day, and this year we've increased production to 11.15 billion barrels per day (BB/day).
Just across our northern border Canada produces 3.9 BB/day and to our south Mexico outputs another 2.9 BB/day.
Do the math...( and you can verify the numbers here at The US Energy Information Administration)
THAT ADDS UP TO 18.3 BILLION BARRELS OF OIL PER DAY PRODUCED RIGHT HERE ON OUR CONTINENT.
I say if the freaking EPA and Congress and the wild eyed tiedyed, patchouli stinking tree hugging hippie environmentalists would get the F**k out of the Oil industry's way we'd never have to send another US dollar HALF WAY AROUND THE WORLD to line the pockets of these assholes:
