Well, Obama's energy policy was written by an illiterate moron, so  
maybe if we are lucky the left will split the difference with the  
right and we'll get a reasonable outcome.  Way too many delusional  
ideologues involved in energy policy.

Around here, no oil policy in the world will change the fact that city  
planners (liberal Democrats for the most part) have intentionally made  
it impossible to significantly reduce transportation energy  
consumption while making mouth noises about the necessity of doing  
so.  Ratcheting down on oil production at the Federal level is wankery  
that avoids addressing root causes and just aggravates the situation.
