I keep hearing about the government's attempts to limit gas demand and/or increase oil production via drilling... but isn't it refineries
that we're in dire need of?
Why isn't everyone pushing to build more refineries
Instead, every republican seems to be pushing for more drilling
I admit to not knowing a lot about the subject so maybe somebody can clue me in.
Didn't the Saudis recently tell Bush that drilling more (wherever one might drill) wasn't the solution, but rather a lack of refining capacity was at the heart of our current price problem?? Not
a lack of raw crude
BTW, I loved how the Saudi's phrased it to Dubya - practically quoting the Merovingian to Neo. They said they "saw no reason" to increase drilling/production on their end, "no reason at all".
No reason at all, indeed.
On a related topic, does Dubya have any clue what the country's strategery oil reserve is for? Maybe he'll buy a clue when it gets a little closer to election time.
