Hey, kids, remember how high gas prices in the U.S. were all Bill Clinton's fault but, no problem, we can fix all that by drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, right? Whoops, apparently not:
Proponents of drilling Arctic National Wildlife Refuge point to rising gasoline prices as a reason to drill one of America's last wild places. But in reality, Arctic Refuge oil would amount to a drop in the bucket of the oil market. The U.S. Department of Energy's own Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that even twenty years down the road, when Arctic Refuge oil is at or near peak production, gas prices would be affected by about a penny per gallon.
And now that you understand how this works, you'll stop making that asinine argument, right? Right? I mean, you wouldn't continue to promote the same bogus fiction for the sake of political expediency once you know it's been debunked, would you? That would be, you know, dishonest.
