Did you know that oil companies are already sitting on 68 million acres of leases that they have not drilled?
Why is Big Oil suddenly desperate to get their hands on the last few places that are still protected -- our natural treasures, wildlife refuges, and pristine coastlines? They are using concerns about high gas prices as an excuse to grab it ALL.
Big Oil and its allies would like you to think that more drilling will ease your pain at the pump, but that's not the truth. More oil drilling will not lower gas prices or create energy independence, it will only make the world's richest oil companies richer.
Average Americans are being squeezed by high energy prices, and the oil companies are taking advantage to push their long-term drilling agenda. They have been spreading a map full of lies though the Internet.
