Gal Luft of the Washington Post today (2/18/07)has an item suggesting that instead of buying oil now for the Strategic National Reserve we should instead prepare ANWR for future use.
From Terri in September 2005:
I’m ok with opening up ANWR for the emergency use. ie. Saudi Arabia decides to sell all of its oil to China and leave us out. But that means you get the mechanisms in place and then let it sit. Congress isn’t proposing that, or even another refinery, (which is another reason for higher prices due to the shutdowns in the south). They are proposing more drilling.
And Republican argued with me over that plan…..what say they now?
