Spooky, Jeff. You sound like the geologists I used to work with at Big Oil in CA. They said the peak numbers of domestic fields have always been misreported to create a panic environment among US consumers so that pump prices and profit margains will continue to rise, so that domestic E&P can continue despite the greenie's complaints.
