Untethered Thoughts from the Mind of a Liberty Loving, God Fearing American

Interesting/Thought Provoking Facts

Posted by Bobby on May 13, 2007

America’s oil consumption and demand has gone up roughly one percent a year since 1976. Ironically, this is the same year that the last oil refinery was built.

Kind of interesting. We are a country who’s entire economy would fall if we stopped receiving oil, yet we have not build a new oil refinery in 31 years. Oil companies like to blame this on environmental groups. This might be true a certain extent, but appeasement of these groups should be low, low, LOW on the list of our government’s and oil companies’ priorities.

We need to become energy dependent and we need to tell these environmentalist groups to either become part of the solution or back off.
