So ANWR would reduce our need for imported oil by 4% of the total US projected demand if we could get at all the ANWR oil

The DOI is quick to point out how much more oil there is in ANWR than in any other place in US, but fails to tell us the obvious : the US domestic supply is satisfying only a fairly small amount of total US consumption. Check this for a wake-up call on all this huffing and puffing by the administration: I also read somewhare that the ANWR reserves would be used up in less than 15 years if extraction plans proposed by US Administration were implemented....
I'd rather have the ANWR preserved for future generations in its pristine state and see some serious attempts at curbing consumption.
