Oil in our Future

June 10th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

With gas topping four dollars a gallon there is renewed interest in drilling for oil off of Floridas coast. Asked if he has changed his opposition to a ban on drilling closer to Florida beaches, Governor Charlie Crist sounded open to the idea this morning.

North America is a place where there is a lot of oil, whether its in Montana, North Dakota, or Alaska, or other places. I think people need more of it in order to reduce the cost.

But when asked point blank if he would support drilling. He said no, and turned the topic to conservation and alternative sources such as ethanol from sugarcane.
