fact, the world needs millions. so, china has gone from 5 million barrels in 2005 to 10 this year. they will be at 15 million barrels demand by 2015. those are millions and millions of new barrels that have to be produced. on top of that, the industry has to make up for annual declines. oil declines about 6% to 8% per year in existing wells. so on a worldwide basis, that's about 7 million barrels a year just to replace the declines over the existing period, plus the new demands from china or india. if the u.s. is producing just that many barrels a day, it's a drop in the bucket from what we need. not just this president, but the last seven presidents before him and the last 20 congresses have really let the american people down by not having any kind of domestic energy plan that would take care of this country and its economy and its citizens over a sustained period of time. that's why i argue that we can't drill our way out of this. i agree with the president. but we could increase drilling by 30% or 40%. >> let's get to the questions. >> john, roland martin here. if gasolines if to $5
