Open Piceance Basin

Colorado and Utah Have More Oil Than the Rest of the World Combined

The USA doesn't need to import any more oil, according to the top U.S. Government's Energy Information Administration (EIA) 2011. Any day now, we can stop importing Middle East Oil (MEO). This hot, eye-popping discovery can make our generation wealthier than any before. Six times as much easy access oil is stored in CO's Piceance Basin (PB) than Saudia Arabia according to Wikipedia. So why aren't we developing already? Why is the government delaying our most desperately needed Prosperity?
