I agree with almost all of the post.
The one thing that politicians won't and can't say, because they can't handle the truth is that there are 24 billion barrels of oil in this country while we burn 6 billion barrels a year.
Alternative soy oil or that made by other processes costs $2.50 to make per gallon, so $3 doesn't leave much. No matter which oil cartel controls what, India and China will buy all the oil it can at any price. Don't look for $3 oil any time soon, if ever. Look for the price of oil to rise again after the election.
The benefits of oil heat remain the same and more:
1. you get to own it, not subject to gas utility delivery.
2. the future oil will be bio-fuel with no toxicity other than drinking too much of it.
3. you don't worry about rocky soil stopping you from delivery as with gas.
4. Oil won't blow up.
