I just received this email and Wow!
> Subject: FW: FW: OIL---you better be sitting down when you read this
> *While the following is true as far as it goes
> (except I didn't know Steve Forbes had a brother), the new oil finds in
> North America go on and on.* Another big new field in East Central
> Texas is just starting serious redevelopment (more on that later) and
> another large field not developed yet has been found in southern
> Illinois and Indiana and into Pennsylvania, and another just found is
> in greater Los Angeles.* The ones in Texas and Pennsylvania are in
> areas that had been drilled previously, but were thought exhausted

> techniques.* Bakken is probably larger than these three together, but
> they are large too, particularly the one in Texas.* Another really big
> new field is in the mountains Northeast of Vancouver.* They have known
> about it for quite awhile, but couldn't extract the oil because it
> (like Bakken) is in stratified shale.* They now know how to get it out
> almost as easily as the oil they've been pumping in Oklahoma and
> Texas.* Another thought to put the size of Bakken in perspective:* The

> Here's an astonishing read.* Important and verifiable information :
> About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and
> one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am

> how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?"* Forbes did not miss a
> beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together."* Please

> The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only
> scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.* It was a
> revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in

> extreme eastern Montana ...... check THIS out:
> The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's

> "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found

> That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years

> U.. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
> Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006* (I subscribe to this.* Bill)
> Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the

> *- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
> *- 22-times as much oil as Iran
> - 500-times as much oil as Yemen
