Politics of Oil

The US will reach it's peak oil production in just four more years. After that, oil production will start dropping -- simply because we're running out. Worldwide, that won't happen until 2030. So oil companies -- looking ahead to falling profits -- are looking for new oil fields. They want Washington to spend your tax dollars to help them look for oil beneath the oceans. They, of course, will keep the profits your taxes provide them with. (Center for Public Integrity)
