U.S. Business

Every time McCain or someone of his ilk says "Drill!" I wonder what fantasies he's having.

There is no guarantee at all that oil drilled domestically will be sold, marketed or refined in the United States. None. As a matter of fact, domestic oil is more likely to be shipped to Japan where the owners can get 8.00 per gallon instead of the measley domestic 4.00.

All drilling will do is pollute the offshore environment and improve the supply of oil wherever someone is willing to pay high. It's almost guaranteed.
