Yeah it's late but I have an excuse, I had to go to Sale & back today & my work dial up internet access wouldn't work when I got there A lot of people can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country. Well, there's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. Our oil is located in Bass Strait, off the coast of Western Australia in the Indian sea, the Timor Sea and the Mereenie oil fields in Central Australia. Our dipsticks are located in Canberra .
