Regarding US dependence on oil, and all of our concerns about it, I have done a little research on it. My conclusion is that the liberals inadvertently saved us some reserves by blocking the removal of oil in some of our largest reserves; the US also has 77 percent of the world’s oil shale reserve. This along with the reserves in Canada (the second largest oil reserve in the world) should put the US in good field position for years to come. See:
If there is a collapse it won’t be based on the lack of this natural resource. I think the Good Lord has provided us His providence in this area. 2 Timothy 2:15 – John Z.
