BUILDING THE OFFSHORE DRILLING RIGS.
Seriously, folks, did you stop to think about this? They're pretty major pieces of equipment on tumultuous waters, they take a while to build!
So, this is major flaw #1 in the thinking that offshore drilling will help your pump price.
The other major flaws are probably covered elsewhere, the big one being that the price of gas has very little to do with supply at this point, it's all about demand. Given that the demand is sharply increasing elsewhere (China and India) and they are willing to pay for it, our sweet deal of getting gas for cheaper because we're the biggest bulk is being undercut.
The price of gas is going to go up more, and stay up, folks. It's time to start planning for this appropriately and not look for magic cures that aren't actually going to help us in the immediate future, if ever.
