fuel imports financed with foreign money

Below is a link to a great read about the true impact of the lack of domestic fuel production in the US.   Over $100 billion in petroleum imports in the first quarter of 2011 alone?  No wonder we are shipping all of our assets over-seas while making it a double-whammy by financing this debt with foreign money.    I find it almost too easy to sell the work we do in bioenergy, too bad nobody seems to be listening.
