We need to show Congress and the Senate, that we have plenty of Oil reserves right here in the US. Only 2.2% of federal offshore land is currently being leased for production, not to mention the 10 billion barrels locked up in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, where drilling would take place on just 2,000 of 19 million acres. Out West, we may have what could be called a "Persia on the Plains." A Rand Corp. study says the Green River Formation, which covers parts of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming, has the largest known oil shale deposits in the world, holding from 1.5 trillion to 1.8 trillion barrels of crude. This is four times the proven oil reserves of Saudi Arabia. Most of it is all locked up by federal edict.
Joins us today to show Congress and the Senate that we want to open these rights up to Americas and Create jobs and no longer be dependant on Foreign Oil. If we are able to raise over a 1,000,000 signatures, that will open their eyes. We all are complaining about Gas Prices, but now is the time to voice our opinion.
You can visit our Facebook page, "Gas Prices Are Out of Control" and join in on the people talking about Gas Prices, How to increase your car's fuel mileage, Jobs, and Energy. Lifting our domestic drilling ban would dramatically lower prices. We can and will make a difference, Please sign the petition and share it with as many people as you can.
Thank You for all your help.
