ANWR is not so significant beyond keeping the State of Alaska's budget afloat a couple more years, but there is enough oil to be developed profitably.

WHAT? Who says that? All I keep hearing is that ANWR is the 3rd largest (according to most reputable sources) petroleum find in the history of America, with enough oil to keep drilling for 30+ years.

(You may disagree with what I have to say, but I shall defend to your death my right to say it.)
There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in America.
Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil.
We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical.
All our oil is in Alaska, Texas, California, and Oklahoma.
But all our dipsticks are in Washington, DC.
I'm not sure but there may be a spelling error in the last sentence.

Hmm, didn't they say it would take ten years to see oil flowing from ANWR if we started drilling today? We should have started when Bush took office four years ago.
