What everyone fails to explain--and that includes the so-called news media--is that all the oil and gas companies drilling everywhere in the U.S. and off our coasts will NOT affect the cost of oil here or fix our energy problems. That is because these companies can sell the oil and gas to anybody they like--our resources do not stay here in our own country.

That is why Alaskan oil goes to Japan and why natural gas as well as oil is sold on the world-wide market. If we were really serious about saving ourselves and our country, we would nationalize our resources so that they are kept and used here. But that will never happen as long as big business owns Congress.
