With gasoline perhaps to hit $4 a gallon this year, what happened to the billions of barrels of oil we have in the oil shale and tar sands we have here in Utah? Remember the last crisis we had when oil hit $30 a barrel and we were told when it hit $40 that the shale and sand would be viable?

Now, at well over $100 a barrel, oil is draining this nation's wealth and giving it to those who really don't like us and laugh that our economy is dying.

When are we going to wake up?
