All we have to do today to remind us why we should vote Obama out is to look at the price of gasoline. When Obama took office gasoline was just $1.85 a gallon, now it is approaching over $4.00 a gallon and more in certain areas. The sad part about this is the FACT that Obama through his Interior Secretary Ken Salazar shut down the world’s largest oil field called the “Green River” formation.
This act was wrong by Obama but he did not care, he felt it more important to get windmills and solar power up, both by the way do NOT produce as much electricity as just one Natural gas fired Generator! To give a show of just how many windmills it takes to replace just one Natural Gas generator, I asked Lord Monckton and found out that the windmill has a factor of just .24 and when calculated against a Natural gas generator, it shows that some 660 windmills are needed to replace just one (1) Natural Gas Generator! Now that is huge, but back to the oil, Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, stated, “We hope today’s decision does not signal the administration is returning to the failed policies of the past, leaving much of America’s vast energy resources locked up while the nation’s demand for energy continues to grow,” He made this statement just before Obama through Ken Salazar shut down all the leases for Utah because they could see the oil derricks from the national park. Had this field been allowed to continue, it could very well have held the price per barrel at the $35 it was when Obama took office.

It also constitutes more than 50 percent of the world’s oil shale reserves, of which 80 percent are owned by the federal government. Read more......
