The article discusses the role that U.S. Democratic Senators played in preventing the U.S. from achieving self-sufficiency in oil. The author mentions the Democrats' rejection of a plan to expand oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in 2001 with U.S. Senator John Kerry's claim that oil reserves in ANWR would last for only six months. The article also notes that a key agenda of the Democrats for rejecting the energy plan of former U.S. President George Bush was increased dependence for oil from Canada.
