So why don't we drill for oil in our backyard? http://www.nobpinhb.com

I agree with Jeff, there's lots of oil down there, it's a no brainer, lets get some, why pay out over 17 million when we could be making some money. We sure could use it, especially our schools!

Schools need money now and not 5, 6, 7 years from now. .20 cents a barrel does not even pay for one salary.
