    If the 400 billion barrel estimate is true, that would put the US in 2nd for global oil reserves (behind the middle east), and 1st for single country (ahead of the Saudis).

    But what about the hybrids maaaaaan...

    Things have reached a breaking point with the high oil prices. The wackos won't be able to stop it this time.

    The oil thing is what fucking-up our economy right now more than anything else. . . Can't wait to see some hippies get steamrolled if they get in the way. . . LOL

    This would be huge...in fact, monsterous. And I also agree that the environment loving hippies really would have an uphill battle to prevent drilling. Oil is our huge problem...and if we can get it here instead of going over there...it'll be a huge wakeup call to the Saudi's and the Middle East. Will this happen anytime soon? I sure hope so...but I'm not counting on it.

    yea but if we can get it here greed will take over and I doubt we will see a huge drop in gas prices if any who knows we may not see this oil here in the US maybe it will be exported

    Fuck the hippies. They're irrelevant asses who can't accept economic progression and changes in technology. Fuck them in their pothead asses with big rubber dicks, and don't stop until they're tasting their own shit. Then put their bodies in a mass grave that may one day yield more oil for us to use.

    Is this enough oil to give the ragheads a run for their money with regard to oil superiority?

    I wish this were true.

    The main reason oil is so expensive now is that China is buying it all up. More demand, higher prices. I would think unless some intervention is done by the government, which isn't likely, most of this oil under the US would end up overseas as well.

    I'm sure they'll use some bullshit excuse as to why the oil prices will not fall if/when we tap this. My guess = recouping some costs tied into getting the oil.

    Stick with the plan. Use up every drop of oil in the middle east then start sucking down our reserves. The arabs can then be marginalized as they spent money like pimps in Harlem and can go back to living i the middle ages and paying us even more for a resource they've come to be addicted to.

    Those people are worth billions. Theres as much of a chance of them going back and living in the middle ages as there is of the Olsen twins posing nude or doing porn.

    I do like the idea of when they run out charging them about $400+/barrel. They can afford it.

    I'm not an expert (no mic) but a lot depends on being able to cost-effectively get it out of the ground and process it. That may be a lot more challenging than it is in the middle east which is really easy. If it the drilling and processing costs are high, it might still be a lot cheaper to deal with the Arabs and pay $3+ a gallon for gas.

    When I saw the thread title I thought that your government had been stockpiling Barrels of Oil.

    1. The article is on a blog (even though they reference the USGS and other reputable agencies and the site is pretty well put together)

    2. Reporting on if Hillary's tears were forced and if Obama is really black is much more important.
