I agree with Russell Means (8/24, Letters). One of the biggest things plaguing the people of this country is the oil “crisis.” However, I guess I fail to see the oil “crisis.” We have enough oil reserves off of our own coasts to last Americans for several years. Why not start drilling the oil and stop draining the pockets of millions of Americans to benefit the booming oil companies?
Somehow it doesn’t seem fair that the oil companies seem to be making a considerable sum of money while most people have to make huge cutbacks in their lives to accommodate the greediness of a few people.
And why don’t politicians finally step up and start saying what they feel about the situation and stop skating around the issue?
