Apparently, our government doesn’t care much about this country being less dependent on foreign oil.

We supposedly have all this natural gas here. The companies that drill for it want to get permits to send the gas overseas to make more money on it, just like they do with the oil they drill for here and turn into gas, which they send overseas.

If the government cared, it would not let them take what they find under our ground and send it overseas. What they drill for and get here should stay.

It’s not like the oil companies aren’t make money on it here. I think making a billion dollars a year on gas here should be enough profit.

We all know these companies give millions of dollars a year to our politicians, but what is right is right.
