[GreenYes] Gas
I agree with the previous post regarding buying all our gas from non-Middle 
East sources.  Oh that it should be so easy.  I'm not even certain the list 
is correct as I have a relative that works for Conoco who lives part time in 
Saudi Arabia.  I believe some of their gasoline does come from the Middle 
East.

Switching from SUVs is perhaps a partial answer but more wishful thinking 
than anything and for those in the snow belt biking to work isn't going to 
happen.  Americans hate mass transit and we must deal with that.  The answer 
is courting other foreign markets that have oil and need the economic help 
(Russia and Mexico spring to mind) and also more domestic exploration.  As 
long as the U.S. is dependent on Middle Eastern oil, we will always have to 
involve ourselves in Middle East policy.
