    Bush didn't mention that he a had a republican majority to work with until 2006, actually until January 2007. An oil man failed to see that prices would increase when he invaded a middle eastern country:rolleyes:

    The truth is big oil couldn't afford to explore and drill the outer continental shelf until recently. There have been a number of test wells drilled and then put on hold.

    Here is an older example:


    Oil leases off of the coast of Florida were purchased by the by the Bush Administration in 2002 to prevent drilling. A favor for his brother perhaps??
