Domestic oil production is up primarily because oil prices are up, which makes our expensive domestic oil profitable to extract. That will change as fast as oil prices go down.
You reminded me of a thread I posted taking on the idiotic Republican claims that the Obama administration has thwarted oil production in the US - http://democratsforprogress.com/forum/sh...production
The Republicans claim to love capitalism, but act like they have no idea how it works when they need to attack their "opponent". Dishonest motherfuckers. Unfortunately, the article in the O/P seems to muddy the waters in a similar fashion WRT oil production. It is good to see alternative power production increasing however.
