Came via e-mail. Interesting info. Snopes cant even debunk it...

Ever heard of the Bakken Formation? GOOGLE it or follow this link.
http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911

The U.S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only
scientists and oilmen knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised
report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of
the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern
Montana ... check THIS out:

Now, the idea of putting that refinery in S.D. is beginning to make sense....


The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe
Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign
oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion
barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel,
we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see
their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson, the Montana
Legislature's financial analyst.

'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found
in the past 56 years,' reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation
known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the
'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and
into Canada. For years, U.S.oil exploration has been considered a dead end.
Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades
ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough ha s opened up the
Bakken's massive reserves... and we now have access of up to 500 billion
barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels
will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years
straight.

2. [And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one
should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO, people!]

U.S.Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the Wold. Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006 Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the
surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the
world is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction.

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders,
than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official
estimates:

-8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
-18-times as much oil a s Iraq
-21-times as much oil as Kuwait
-22-times as much oil as Iran
-500-times as much oil as Yemen- and it's all right here in the Western United States.

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this!? Because the
democrats, environmentalists and left wing republicans have blocked all
efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil.
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in
this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION
barrels. Untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil
in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think
again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to.
Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking
about it ... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:

3. Take 10 minutes and compose an e-mail; fax or good old-fashioned
letter to all your friends and associates. Alert them to the fact that
democrats and 'liberal' republicans have been and will continue to obstruct
all plans to make America independent of foreign oil. The only solution is
to vote all democrats and Marxist oriented republicans out of office.
If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle
yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by
doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.
Glenn T Swindle

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you
sent this to every one in your address book.

I'm all for drilling the shit out of the area if that's the case, but let's keep this oil to ourselves for our own use. Let's not allow the oil companies to peddle it to the highest bidder.............in China for instance. If the American oil companies don't want to make that commitment, let's have the government form a National Oil Company and have the feds produce it for the US citizens.

Why George, that would mean that the government would be upholding it's constitutional duty to the American people! BTW I completely agree.

Yes the Government does such a good job of spending our resources now, I bet they could figure away to get the price up to $10.00 or $12.00 a gal. for gas and spend more money on the welfare monkey's, just like our SS money

There is plenty of oil much closer than the middle-east.

Mexico has a HUGE oil and gas field in the southern Gulf of Mexico. If every illegal alien would bring in a barrel with him, we'd be looking pretty good.
