Two Bonnies,

I also believe there are reserves that have not been tapped yet, and I also believe that they have been kept secret from the general public. Reason being scare tactic and another sympathy reason for higher fuel cost.

here is a image as of 2000 of known reserves.

Just look up known reserves. and then go look up consumption. Then do the math.
iv seen both sides of this argument . and Both side have FACTs and both give a great argument, but im on the side of that theres a LOT more then we are told

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) Gasoline prices in the United States, which have recently hit record highs, are actually much lower than in many countries. Drivers in some European cities, like Amsterdam and Oslo, are paying nearly 3 times more than those in the U.*.

The main factor in price disparities between countries is government policy, according to AirInc, a company that tracks the cost of living in various places around the world. Many European nations tax gasoline heavily, with taxes making up as much as 75 percent of the cost of a gallon of gasoline, said a spokesperson for AirInc.

In a few Latin America and Middle-East nations, such as Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, oil is produced by a government-owned company and local gasoline prices are kept low as a benefit to the nation'* citizens, he said. All prices updated March, 2005.

Nation City Price in USD Regular/Gallon
Netherlands Amsterdam $6.48
