I want to drill now and cut dependence on foreign oil.
Nooo, never, they might destroy the environment.
Haven't decided yet.

Every coastal town should have as many wells as mine.

I want to drill, but we should only be pulling a small amount of oil from our reserves.
Why bother using our reserves when we can use theirs? Having the ability to ramp up production to meet demand will put them in a position where they would have to meet our price demands. Then if the bastards start getting uppity and threatening to exterminate us or our allies, we can refuse to buy middle eastern oil and start pumping our own.

Kick those caribou to the curb!
Opening up ANWR won't drop gas prices back to Ozzie and Harriet levels but it will a step toward lessening our dependence on foreign energy sources. I'm all for anything that would do that.
I signed the petition, SLW, although Newt scares me since he was in that Pelosi commercial. ;)

We either drill here - to get us over the technological advancement time hump, or we secure more off-shore sources - via our armed forces.

It's not just the price at the pump, but the far reaching consequences to our defense, even to our local governments. People forget the police departments, sanitation, street departments all consume gasoline. They're affected at the pump also.
