    • "Now, we can conserve, and we've got to conserve. But this is a lot of oil, potentially, up there. Alaska has been producing about 25% of the total crude oil produced in the United States for the last almost 30 years. If there's an abundance of oil in A.N.W.R., it could be as much as what we would import from Saudi Arabia in 25 years. So this could be a very big thing. And it's in the national security interests, because an awful lot of what we do when we import oil is we send our dollars overseas to the Mid-East. And a lot of this funds terrorism. Make no mistake about it. We know where the funding is coming from. It's coming from oil." – Gov. Frank Murkowski
