The price of oil impacts every aspect of your daily life.

The price of EVERYTHING will increase with the price of oil, because EVERYTHING is shipped from somewhere else.

...and you are saying what? I realize that the oil affects more than just prices at the pump but what you have to realize is that while we are paying these mideastern countries for their oil...we are strengthening them, thereby financing their ability to further harm us.

here's are a few facts for you...

1) Iran is the 4th largest supplier of oil to the world

2) Iran sponsors terrorism (particularly in Iraq)

3) Terrorists hate the US

4) Hezbollah is a terrorist organization

5) Hezbollah has attacked the US and intends to do so again

We purchase Iran's oil, Irans in turn supplies terrorist organizations that uses those supplies to hurt us and our allies...very smart!

I'm sorry to inform you that you'd lose your bet...we buy oil from everyone...just because the US has no diplomatic relations to Iran doesn't mean that our businessmen don't either. As far as what I am saying...either re-read the posts or leave it alone patna...I refuse to rewrite all of that, much less go into an indepth explanation as to what I am getting at, pretty sure I was clear enough....
