With gas prices soaring to over $4 a gallon, many people and industries are feeling the sting of high gas prices. We in the oil industry want everyone, including you, to now that we feel your pain and we hear your pleas of a solution. To be honest, we've been at a bit of a loss. Until now. Mr. Feingold, you're comments about "use it or lose it" were nothing short of brilliant. To say you've re-energized an entire industry would be putting it lightly. All this time we've been banging our heads against the wall looking for solutions and the answer was right under our nose . . . well, feet, actually!
The fact is, it NEVER occurred to us to drill for more oil in other areas of our leased land. D'oh! All that time and energy wasted on trying to convince the government and the public that we needed to drill in other areas for our oil . . . man, I feel foolish talking about it right now.
So, thank you, Mr. Feingold. Thank you for the obvious. Between some big salary types and those idiot researchers, we've got some house cleaning to do.
We'll get started right away.
