American oil fuels U.S. economy

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJanuary 25, 2014 

Let's start at our food source from small farmers to mega-acre farmers, they are going to need diesel. Transportation to get the food processed and to market require more fuel. Construction of factories to our homes need more fuel. To make it to our jobs we need fuel, some people do not live close to their jobs an cannot bike to work.

To get things needed we need fuel. I would rather send our dollars to our country and create jobs here than send our money to Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and others where they hate us and fund terrorist that try to kill us.
