looks a little peaky…probably just a temporary hitch… don’t be alarmed…
Note: the Bakken shale is in Montana as well as North Dakota.

That’s what oil exporters do! Yup, we’re going to frack our production up about 200% over its current level, and get more efficient of course, and, of course, “do it right,” and then we’ll start exporting crude to those suckers in Japan and Europe. But first —
But all of this depends on an understanding between the oil industry and the environmentalists. If President Obama could pull that off, it would be a huge contribution to America’s security, economy and environment.
Yeah, that’s it. If we can just come to an understanding with the environmentalists, it’s OPEC time!
Friedman is unbelievably bad sometimes. Other times, believably so.
