Cuba doubles oil reserves estimate

Cuba's oil reserves may be larger than originally estimated. The BBC is reporting that the country's state-owned oil company says it may have more than 20 billion barrels of oil in the Cuban oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico. That is twice the amount of all previous estimates.

If the figure were correct, it would make Cuba's oil reserves as large as those of the United States and twice as large of those in Mexico. It would also add the island to the list of the twenty largest oil producers in the world.

The state-owned oil company says it expects to begin drilling for oil in the middle of next year.

So why would Miami get pissed off? I would be more worried about Bush suddenly deciding we need to take over Cuba for some stupid reason when its to get at there oil.

Seriously?

I believe there is a lot of South Miami who do not want us doing business with Cuba.
