Les Bishop: Oil and water

December 9, 2012 

Oil and water

The great news we are hearing is that in a relatively short period of time the United States will be energy independent, fracking our way coast to coast. We will no longer be under OPEC’s thumb. No more $85-$100 barrels of oil from the Middle East.

Let’s just hope and pray that in becoming energy independent we don’t create an even bigger problem contaminating our ground water supplies and find ourselves having to import clean drinking water at $200 a barrel.
