The plan, announced by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, opens 11.8 million acres for development in an area believed to hold 549 million barrels of economically recoverable oil and 8.7 trillion cubic feet of economically recoverable natural gas.

Obama administration announces drilling plan for Alaska reserve (ANWR)? Has 'coming out of the closet' Sneeky finally realized the sale of fuel from crude oil and natural gas to other countries will pay for his spending gone wild administration? The taxpayers will be paying for his wild spending for years and years.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Sure. Print more $ and deplete all resources. Future American generations will be in huge debt and no natural resources.

not a wise choice, but given the glut for oil, a necessity.

Wow. Just I when I think the level of discourse can't sink any lower on this forum, I am surprised yet again. Get it through your head people! President Obama is not a socialist or even a liberal. He is a MODERATE. But you people are so far into the Right Wing bubble that you think he's the next coming of Lenin.

Get a clue people!

Okay, @fuelsaverMN, what exactly is your position, besides bashing the President? The man could outlaw abortion, sign a constitutional amendment to mandate both prayer and guns in school, and abolish Medicaid and you would still be dissatisfied.

Why now, what has changed, since we keep hearing about all this new technology that will recover the billions of barrels of oil from oil sands in the existing oil field. Something fun in my book!!!!!
