  1. The supply chain for oil is very complex. That being said, the fracking that we are doing in the United States has made the Middle East nervous that we could depend on our own oil. We even want to export our own oil. That being said, the Saudi Arabians will do anything to keep the price of a gallon of gas somewhere between three and four dollars a gallon. They don't want us going to alternative fuels even more than we do.
