How do you know that offshore oil will last forever? It's not a solution. That will take years to get online anyway.

I think if the get their own oil, they won't have to send all their money overseas for oil. You seen the market lately?

Would you rather have a dead economy??? The rigs could be 50 miles off shore so theres no way you could see that far out.

Would you rather have a dead economy??? you must not care about things like that. The rigs could be 50 miles off shore so theres no way you could see that far out. Maybe we can use 'vegan flan' to power our cars... Could you make it for us???

I don't know why you posted twice in a row instead of just editing your original post.

Do really you think getting some finite oil supply off Florida (that won't be online right away) is going to solve the economic problems we are facing? If anything, it will make things worse because we'll be oil-dependent for that much longer.

Imagine improving on perfection with ***new*** facilities.

We are tying our own neuse by letting the environmental lobby OWN us.
so the Dems are to blame for this now? If I recall for the past 8 years we had two Oilmen in the White House plus the Republicans controlled Congress for 12years. Why have they not done anything about it in all that time?

Did you know that a good portion of Alaskan Oil is exported to Japan & other countries in Asia instead of being sold here? With all the money Big Oil has & in their powerful Lobbyists you are going to tell me a bunch of tree huggers are stopping them? Sounds like a cop out to me.

Houston and New Orleans are making up for non shipments to Florida ports as fast as they can, and we are steadily building back up our little inventory we have at our terminals at Port Everglades (for S Florida) and Tampa, which are the two biggest barge locations for gasoline in Florida.

The Colonial Pipeline (which runs from Houston to NYC) is the largest gas pipeline in the US. It is still not running at full capacity dropping shipments where it should be. Georgia was also behind on allowing the "dirtier" gas to be allowed to run in Atlanta, while surrounding states did allow it. Thus they were getting shipments first of whatever quality gasoline was available.

I am not sure of the quality of the pipelines that run from the Georgia cost to the city of Atlanta, but I believe it is minimal. Atlanta has never been a place with a huge supply of gasoline, only because the Colonial pipeline passes through it instead of being a destination.

Lets get back to the OP: I saw that in Georgia and other southern states people are unable to find gas, but it's not happening here.

We've still got gas, plus we won't have the "home heating oil crisis" that the cold states will face this winter.

We got it made!
