Reader laments gas prices

Dear Editor,

When I was 16 years old, I could have bought a car for what it cost me to fill my pick-up with gas. For many years we have had to import the oil from the Arabs, because we didn’t produce enough oil in the USA to fill our needs. Now that we are producing over a million barrels a day, just from the new Bakken oil fields in North Dakota, I thought soon the price of gas will come down to a sane level.
