12. WOW, using disaster to line his cronies pockets!
Since there is no place to refine the reserves, it does no good to release them, at least for the general populace.

what it does is allow Bush's oily cronies to have access to cheap crude that they don't even have to pay to store, you and I are picking up the storage tab on this one.
