American Oil – “Drill, Baby, Drill!”
The American oil industry is imperative to our independence economically and diplomatically. It is not a thing of the past; we are still one of the highest consumers in the world. We have come to depend upon foreign entities and monopolies like OPEC pressure us with rising prices. Middle Eastern revolution and disruption has led to stock market issues, as investors watch their risky investments overseas.
The oil rigs we have in our country have given thousands of people jobs, and have aided us in importing less. We invest in our own country, and all money is maintained in the American economy. We need more drilling more than ever, as coastal economies collapse and oil prices rise to challenge an unstable economy. MAKE AMERICAN OIL A PRIORITY.
