Well, friends and relatives in the industry are disgusted with the sluggishness of the bureaucracy. Most Americans have no idea just how long it takes to tap oil in a pool. You do not just set-up a drilling rig and start drilling. The reams of paperwork and the MONTHS of waiting for all the clearances makes the time from discovery to pumping average 2 to 3 years. Sometimes, the lag time is 4 to 5 years.

The paperwork process for the North Slope Gas Pipeline was estimated to take 5 years. Then they order pipe and it would be at least another 2 years after the pipe arrives from Japan or wherever. Figure 10 years until gas flows.

They’re not the only ones disgusted.
I’m disgusted too!

I’m disgusted with our spineless Congress’ constant capitulation to the tree-hugging snail-darter-loving whale-kissing spotted-owl-petting SUV-burning nutbags in this country.

(There, now I feel better)
