With so much debate going on at this time about energy, I am surprised that millions of barrels of oil are being transported from the North Sea to South Korea, Chile, Canada. Four very large oil tankers took 6 million barrels of oil from the North Sea to South Korea last month. This is due to the fact they want to get away from their dependency on oil from the Middle East.
Yet, we, in this Country are also importing oil from other parts of the world and one reason I have heard why we pay so much for our energy is because of transporting that energy. My simple question would be why are we paying for transporting oil when their is energy and oil on our door step? Surely if we used this oil in the North Sea rather than selling it to the other side of the world that would lower our energy bills, which are becoming a problem for a number of people.
