Woody why don't you look at the bright side. Focus on the positives such as the US, Canada, Brazil, Ecuador, Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. Why just focus on dark clouds, but I know what you mean. Oil can be both a curse and blessing. Anyway, for years I have been hearing this oil deposit BS in the DR and I have not yet seen anyone find any worthwhile amount to justify the millions of dollars needed for extraction of petroleum
