Muh... if *you* remembered junior school science, then you would recall that petroleum is a non-renewable resource. The fears of dwindling supplies, which has in turned fueled speculation, is one of the major causes (if not _the_ cause) of the spike in gas prices. So while increasing supply would most certainly reduce the price of gas, it is really in our best interest to reduce our demand instead. There are lots of alternatives to electricity generation other than petroleum and natural gas, and reducing usage of automotive transportation is fairly easy for most poeple to do... easier than drilling for oil in Anwar.
