Drill or Not?

A lot of people think we should stop drilling for oil. Beside gasoline, heating oils, etc., which of these products are you willing to remove from your life style: your Iphone, a heart valve, go back to ice chests for refrigerating food, stop wearing shoes, draw water from a central source instead of having it piped in? Take a good look at this list. You will be surprised how many products are manufactured with an oil by-product. I was.
