The Solution to the oil crisis is not finding more places to drill for oil. That's like saying the solution for the economy is to print more money.

But printing more money is different because there isn't anything backing it. More oil is the actual valuable substance. Drilling for more oil really is a good solution. We should drill in Alaska, and other locations inside our country. Making us more self sufficient.

The point I was trying to make was that neither solution looks to find the source of the problem. In the case of oil its that we have stopped trying to be more efficient with energy. Given techological advances of computers I find it impossible to believe that the current "combustion engine" technology is as advanced as it can be. Considering the MPG of cars has not risen dramatically in the past THIRTY YEARS. Yet, PCs double in speed every two years. Gutting Alaska for some oil doesn't do anything but extend how long we rely on oil.
