If you'd like a laugh, spend a minute with Dear Abby,

Gas prices have skyrocketed 80 cents per gallon in the past year.

If you're travelling this Fourth of July weekend, that means the trip costs you an extra $13 for every time you fill up! It's time to take real action to lower gas prices - and keep them low!

And unless the Federal Government allows the development of America's own vast resources, we're just another international crisis away from gas prices reaching $4/gallon again - or soaring even higher.

You can help right now: Send a letter to the Obama Administration and tell them to support offshore drilling in Alaska!

This link will take you to a Facebook page where you can send a prewritten [embedded] letter to the right person.

If you've never sent an e-mail message to the government before, this may help.

All you have to do is TAB through the data fields, filling in each one.

At the bottom, press the Submit button. Voila! Your letter is e-mailed to Alaska.

Here's the content of the pre-written letter, in case you're curious. Personally, I think this letter is a little wordy, but the main thing is, your letter will be counted, if not read word for word.

RE: Comments on Revised Draft SEIS, Lease Sale 193 Chukchi Sea

Dear Mr. Kendall:

I am writing to express my support for Lease Sale 193 as well as my appreciation for the thorough review the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Enforcement and Regulation (BOEMRE) has undertaken. I believe this latest Revised Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) thoughtfully addresses the concerns raised about the potential for a very large oil spill and rightfully concludes the risk is minimal. Now that Lease Sale 193 has been fully reviewed, I urge the BOEMRE to finalize the SEIS and allow the development of these vital resources to proceed.

Currently, the United States imports roughly half of the crude oil that it consumes. And that has been amid a recession that has tempered demand significantly. Still, according to the Energy Information Administration, the United States will consume over 19 million barrels per day of crude oil and liquid fuels in 2011, up 140,000 barrels per day from the year before. Further, U.S. demand is projected to increase by an additional 170,000 barrels per day in 2012, while global demand is forecast to increase by 1.4 million barrels per day and 1.6 million barrels per day in 2011 and 2012, respectively. At the same time, U.S. oil production has dropped slightly in 2011 while OPEC projection is slated to increase significantly in comparison to non-OPEC production. Clearly, the United States is overly reliant on foreign imports of a commodity that is critical to our nation's economic health.

With these facts in hand, it is imperative that BOEMRE allow America to develop its abundant energy resources, especially those in Alaska's Outer Continental Shelf. The United States continues to import oil from unstable and adversarial countries despite the vast North American resources available. Relying on oil from countries like Saudi Arabia, Libya and Venezuela not only places the United States at risk for disruptions in supply and price spikes; it also supports repressive and anti-American regimes.

In conclusion, I believe the BOEMRE must move efficiently to finalize this process and allow the development of our domestic resources. At a time when global energy security is increasingly affected by supply disruptions and political unrest, the United States must do all that is possible to bolster its energy security.

Sincerely,

Developing oil and natural gas resources off Alaska will:

  • Supply Americans with abundant domestic energy and help lower overseas imports;

  • Create tens of thousands of American jobs in Alaska and throughout the United States;

  • Add billions in revenue to the federal government at a time of ballooning federal deficits; and

  • Provide necessary supplies to keep the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, one of the most critical infrastructures in our country, from shutting down permanently.

You will send a strong message to our government that American energy security and American jobs are at stake.

Speak out now. We can't afford any delays!

Thank you, Consumer Energy Alliance


Dear Abby,

[I think we could all use a good laugh about now.
Thanks, Emily, for the contribtion. gel]

My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit-card bills. At the end of the month If I try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money. He says "pay the minimum and let our kids worry about the rest" but already we can hardly keep up with the interest.

Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch, to whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more.

Also, he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the anti-Christ, and the next he's with Muslims.

Finally, the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, they must sign a loyalty oath.

It's just so horribly creepy! Can you help?

Dear Lost: Stop whining, Michelle. You get to live in the White House for free, travel the world, and have others pay for everything for you. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with him for two more years!

Signed, Abby
