I hate being right...

...though, I must admit, when it comes to energy policy and what we need to do (and need not to do), it's happening pretty damn often.

If Congress were to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, crude oil prices would probably drop by an average of only 75 cents a barrel, according to Department of Energy projections issued Thursday.

The report, which was requested in December by Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, found that oil production in the refuge "is not projected to have a large impact on world oil prices."

At this point, I'd like to invite the Republicans in Congress (as well as Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry) to drink a nice tall glass of shut the fuck up. Oh, and media... if you'd like to, you know, REPORT THIS, that would be great. I love McClatchy but I'd like to see this elsewhere.
