Looking at where our oil comes from

Just as many of us have begun looking more closely at where our food comes from, the Gulf oil spill demands that we look at where our oil comes from.

Everyone who drives a car, uses oil to heat their home or business, or purchases plastic products, has a responsibility to know where that product came from.

If that many of us had been looking, would government regulators at MMS have been able to get away with such laxity in enforcing regulations?

And my Quaker friend David Summerhays points out that food and oil are actually closely interlinked, by transportation, fertilizers, packaging, and more.
