How about all those ads exhorting us, “drill, baby drill”? We’re told that gas pump prices will come down as a result. But are we being told the truth? Hmm….
According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, the oil companies are having the last laugh with the notion that increasing drilling will lower prices. NRDC makes the argument that more drilling will only increase the total profits of the oil companies, but not benefit the public. Meanwhile, the biggest way to save at the pump? Switch to a more energy-efficient vehicle.
Um….duh! Common sense rules again.
