The price of oil has risen to $120 a bbl. Our national economy is going to tank, and these little politicians want to shut down a local source of oil........... I just hope that the Federal government remembers that the North won the Civil War. I also hope that lawers do some thing just for once.

FYI- natural gas futures WERE $7.80 MMBtu closing on 1/23/08. Just now the quote was $10.90 MMBtu-
just under 40% increase in 3 months.

Sooner or later, someone will need to decide, do we want our families to starve in the dark while freezing,or not-

Rio Arriba county should also forfit any state funds collected from oil and gas severence taxing during this 4 month moritorium - San Juan County would be glad to take that chunch of change$$$$. The oil and gas severence tax alone accounts for over 15% of the total NM state budget - not including oil and gas royalty, corporate income tax, oilfield worker income tax, and sales tax on material and services for drilling these wells. This is some what remenisent of happenings in Venenzuala and Russia where the rules of the game change after money has been spent. If we keep heading in this direction will need to rename Rio Arriba county to Rio Arribizstan.

Well You know they dont hesitate! Yet they all want everyone to live in mud huts while the live like kings.
