What I am saying is that we should make ourselves less dependent on them for oil. Or they are going to continue to jerk us around as long as they can get away with it. I am not say that there is a shortage of gas and that suvs are causeing it. If we cut back on our consumption and find alternatives to oil then we can jerk them around for a change. Gas guzzeling automobile are making us more dependent on countries who don't care at all about us. But too if you make opec countries poor then we will just have to support them like we do everyone else. Suv are just part of the problem. All autos seem to be going back to bigger is better. There should be a balance. They need to make money and we need reasonable pricing. Our country just need to take more control of its destiny and conserve when we can easily do so as to not make us so dependent.
