Max Refining Capacity or Max Oil Production?

When hearing something like this come from T. Boone Pickens, one can't help but wonder what he's into now? Well, my oh my! Look who's peddling alternative enrgy in Texas. You see Mr. Pickens, on one hand the oil companies are telling us that there is plenty of oil, just not enough refining capacity. On the other hand you are telling us there just isn't enough oil out there for us to refine. S#@t in one hand, C#$p in the other... it stinks no matter which direction I look. . Mr. Pickens is a shameless hawker of whatever nonsense will make him richer. He shamelessly donated millions to the swift boat veterans who told lies about John kerry's military record.. (This from a man who never had the courage to serve in our military). Whatever Mr. Pickens is selling, I guarantee it benefits T. Boone Pickens more than it does anyone else.
