Exxon: America will always rely on foreign oil

Not only that, but the head of ExxonMobil even says that America should stop trying to become energy-independent! And this is the kicker:
Because we are all contributing to and drawing from the same pool of oil, all nations -- exporting and importing -- are inextricably bound to one another in the energy marketplace.
In other words, can't we all just get along? Well, the answer is, "No!" Start with three thousand dead people in Manhattan. Continue with this dust-up about those cartoons, the most incendiary of which turned out to be faked.

The head of ExxonMobil needs to watch his mouth, in fact--because one might with some justice construe his remarks as expressing the sentiment of a vast oligopolistic conspiracy. And just so everyone knows: BP/Amoco doesn't hold with that. Not if their multiple alternative-fuels initiatives mean anything.
