    The US needs to do drastic measure to improve our dependency. The price for a gallon of gasoline and diesel fuel is outrageous. If something does not happen soon many middle class below middle class and the poverty stricken will be totally dependent of the government for support. Is that what this country needs during the tough times that are already in progress. We are not out of this recession, my paycheck has not grown in 4 years. I have not had a raise in 4years, then they, “the government and federal agencies take away. Oil is the number one priorty during this election year, but they keep saying it is jobs. Lets all wake up and drill within the US, and lower these outrageous gas and diesel prices.
