    A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country. Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is simple: it's purely geographical.

    Our oil is located in Alaska, California, Coastal Florida, Coastal Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

    However, our DIPSTICKS Are located in Washington, DC !!!
    Any Questions???

    LOL. ND is sitting on about 1.2 billion barrels of oil that is recoverable. Thats only 1% in the Bakken formation. Maybe some more drilling is needed....
