Don’t get your hopes to high, there are some facts you need to know first. The AGIA plan while a good one if awarded will grant 500 million Ak state dollars to Trans Canada TC for the permitting process, it does not require them to actually build the pipe. Bp and Conoco have both said they were going to build it anyway for the last 30 years. Haven’t broken ground yet. The pipeline will not extend to the lower 48 it will go to Alberta Canada where the natural gas will be used to refine the bitman pits or tar sands. Canada has talked about building a pipeline to the west coast where the oil from the tar sands or bitman pits refined with Alaska gas will then be sold to Asia. Thank of all those miles of Canadian jobs. Currently all Alaska oil with the exception of small bit is kept here is sold to the Asian market and the lower 48 gets none of it. No Alaskans do not get cheaper fuel prices currently the price for regular is 4.49 per gallon in anchorage go north south or in the bush and well it will be you first born +the next 3 generations. But we get a thousand dollar check each year. Cook inlet natural gas was recently given the go ahead by the US department of Energy to continue to sell to Asia . If you are hoping for a bit of relief at the pump forget it. Don’t blame the tree hugging greenies even they couldn’t pull this one off. In Alaska there are huge amounts of oil and gas they leases are already held by oil companies. They won’t drill, Why? No it is not the enviro-nut job it is the oil companies. For the last 9 years I have heard the heads of oil companies defend the stockpiling of oil with comments like why would we compete against our selves and it is not profitable enough, enough being the key word. Bottom line oil and gas in the ground with a lease held , money in the bank .To be pumped when the price is right, and no competition. All state and federal oil leases need to have a use it or loose it clause in them, Alaska has just taken Point Thomson natural gas field lease back from Exxon they held the lease 30 years and did nothing, that is a gold mine gas lease. The only way for imitated and long term relief at the pump is to take control of the speculators that is going to be a difficult job. Speculators or (legal insider traders) are artificially inflating the oil prices, Oil companies are making a hefty profit from this. That profit leads right to the political pockets.
You can go to http://www.opensecrets.org/ to find out what industry is doing the giving and to who’s vote. One simple way to combat this big problem is each time you go to the gas station make a small sticker or label that tell who much you senator is worth to oil and gas stick it on the pump right by the price. And put one up each time you fill up. It won’t bring the price down but it will get under your senators skin.

a step in the right direction.
but we always need to keep in mind the level of the corruption that we are up against in the oil corporations. this corruption is best evidenced by these two facts...
1. the sensors they have been having the auto companies put into cars since 1985 and the more sophisticated ones since 1995 are in there in order to keep your mpg pegged where they want it.
2. a Model T Ford in 1908 got 40% better gas mileage than a vehicle does today on an average.

ok, here is new news. watch the videos at http://mywater4gasengine.com
many people are sharing their happy results in these videos. these are results of higher gas mileage from using Water4Gas.
join the Water4Gas revolution now and strike back against the bastards in the oil and auto companies.
