An additional 2 or 3 million barrels a day would probably drive prices
down more than that. But it's not just ANWR that we're talking about.
Offshore drilling could add millions of barrels more a day and that
would have an effect.
Besides whatever oil the US produces domestically means less imports.
That means jobs for the US workers and profits for US companies.
Bottom line --- we're going to buy the oil from someone, it might as
well be from ourselves.

So you say - over and over and over again.
There must be some kind of echo in the room.

Yes, if we drilled all the oil out of ANWR we could watch the price
plummet by at least 2 or 3 cents per gallon.
What's your theory for the price dropping 75 cents since July?
Let me guess....upcoming election.

For a guy who spent years teaching and researching at the university
level about materials science it is pretty sad that you didn't apply
some of your own knowledge and experience towards the solving that problem.
