The Impact of Gas Cost$

Anne has a great post on "the financial impact of the gasoline-driven church"" Take a moment to read it. Neat perspective.

Speaking of gas I have a question... (really, not trying to start something I am seriously looking for an answer). Why do we need to lease more acres to expand offshore drilling when we are only currently drilling in/on 10.2 million of the 41 million that are currently leased? I heard today that 79% of the available off shore oil lies in these acres that are sitting untouched. Why expand (lease more) if we/they (with they being big oil) are not drilling at capacity now? Is it to maintain price/profit? or to maintain the argument that Environmentalists are the cause of the current gas problem? Anyone know? I really am curious.
