Good news from Chevron :

Chevron and its partners have successfully extracted oil from a test well in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an achievement that could be the biggest breakthrough in domestic oil supplies since the opening of the Alaskan pipeline.

The news sent oil prices lower, with U.S. light crude for October delivery sinking 69 cents to $68.50 on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Wholesale price of gas is $1.66.

I know this will not be in production overnight, but it might take the wind out of oil futures.

What can the environmentalist extremist do to stop the project? Will they be able to manipulate the government agencies into demanding a countless number of “environmental studies?”

I have to say it does not sound like they are going to do anything.
