Thread Name: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
" we live in a smallish, population-wise, area."

We do not...we live near Wash DC, and big vehicles going fast are everywhere. I know several people with large Motor Coaches...one of which is about as big as is legal. It is parked in a shed right now, with its future use uncertain.

We have severe traffic problems, with rush-hour traffic backed up for miles in many places. I am NOT going to a couple of festivals this Summer that I would like to, because I simply can't justify the gas to get there.

I repeat...ANWR would, at the most optimistic scenario, do very little to lower your gas prices, because by the time it is on line, world use will have outstripped possible benefits.

ANWR would be only a VERY dubious and expensive band-aid.
