    He just would have "preferred" them to go up a little more slowly.

    BTW. He voted for the "Energy Policy" that the President submitted to Congress. But, if he can't remember how many states there are, why should he remember that?

    Oh, and for those of you who like to chant there is no difference between the Republicans and Democrats, please review the chart from the House Republican Whip's Office.

    "WASHINGTON — A House subcommittee on Wednesday rejected a Republican-led effort to open up more U.S. coastal waters to oil exploration.

    Rep. John Peterson, R-Pa., spearheaded the effort. His proposal would open up U.S. waters between 50 and 200 miles off shore for drilling. The first 50 miles off shore would be left alone.

    But the plan failed Wednesday on a 9-6, party-line vote in a House appropriations subcommittee, which was considering the proposal as part of an Interior Department spending package."

    China is drilling in these same areas off Florida. Why are the Democrats letting China get our oil?

    Are all right wingers stiff? Aren't a few flexible? The liberals have been hoping for higher gas prices for years and now they should be happy.

    It shouldn't be that hard to see that our enemy that wants to see our demise is alive and well right here at home....and half the population of this once great country will vote for them in the next election.


    Wake up America!

    Ya know flincher, if you would quit reading the drivel put out by the mainstream media and your Democrat handlers and just use Google you could learn the truth and alleviate your remarkable ignorance: Google "US Oil Exports", guess what?

    From a CRS report done for Congressional members. Full link above.

    "Oil export still remains a controversial issue on at least two counts:
    ! Concerns about U.S. petroleum exports during a time of need and high
    prices.
    ! Concerns that the environmentally sensitive ANWR could be opened for
    production on the grounds of energy security but instead produce oil for
    export.
    With regard to current oil exports, during the first months of 2005, about 267,000
    barrels per day4 of petroleum were exported from PAD District 5, which comprises the
    western states, including Alaska and Hawaii. No crude oil at all was exported. During
    this period 94,000 barrels per day of petroleum coke and 78,000 bd of residual fuel oil
    were sold abroad. Petroleum coke — comprising 35% of exports — is used in making
    steel and is not really a fuel. Residual fuel oil (about 30% of exports) is not widely used
    on the West Coast. Some refineries have difficulty fully converting this heavy fuel into
    other products, and this oil seeks a market abroad. Some likely leaves the country as fuel
    for ships engaged in international commerce. Only 10,000 bd of gasoline was exported.
    The United States does export about one million barrels per day of oil and oil
    products; almost none of this is crude oil. The amount of exports is significant enough
    to cause concern among those fearful that the country is exporting oil in a time of high
    prices when that oil is needed at home. But 14% of this petroleum is traded with Canada,
    23% with Mexico, and 13% is petroleum coke. Canada and Mexico are among the
    nation’s most important suppliers of crude oil; in 2004 they supplied 2.1 mbd and 1.6
    mbd of the nation’s gross total imports of 12.9 mbd.5 Any exports to these countries are
    likely related to geographic considerations involving ease of transport. And they are more
    than offset by the great importance of Canadian and Mexican oil supplies to this country."
