Should allow it, but have some restrictions or procedures in place to not destroy the area.

No- there are plenty of reserves in the Gulf of Mexico- let's get there first before OPEC does.

Yes, but the question should more properly be stated "in a PORTION of the Arctic National Wildlife Preserve". All the "anti" propaganda makes it same that the intent is to drill in the entire wilderness.

The government should NOT allow drilling here. Some places need to remain as they are so tomorrow's generation may have an idea as to what the world once was.

No. There's probably more reserves in North Dakota - eastern Montana then on the north slope. Get the easier stuff first.

No. Drilling there will not ease prices now or in the near future. At least they shouldn't until they have exhausted every other option for obtaining easy oil.

Should not. If oil is needed that bad, then another location should be chosen instead. In the meantime, continue development and utilization of alternative fuels since that time is inevitable anyway.
