<<"Use it or lose it." - Seattle Pioneer

Where's it going? It's in the bank. Personally I think it's illogical to use it up when there are other sources of oil available. Much smarter to use the rest of the world's oil first before tapping into our own reserves.

It wont be going anywhere if the Alaska pipeline utilization gets reduced to a low enough point, which it will if new oil fields aren't brought into production.

When available oil for transport falls to a certain level, the oil pipeline will have to be shut down, and removed root and branch very likely. At that point, we will no longer have an option to exploit remaining oil reserves.
