T. Boone Pickens is the man!

T. Boone Pickens was on Glenn Beck Show tonight. They were discussing how we have gotten into the mess of having $134 barrel of oil and gas prices near $4.

One of his comments struck me. Now, we tend to think about how the gas prices affect us individually. But, this comment really strikes a BIG chord. He said,
We are importing 72% of our oil from other countries. And at $125 a barrel, we are EXPORTING $750 BILLION outside this country. And many of those countries are not our friends.
Instead of keeping the money here in our own country by developing our own oil resources, we are throwing money to other countries instead of supporting our own.
