It's nearly impossible today to imagine that gas would sell for just one dollar per gallon, but that's the goal of President Jack Reeder. After extensive study, former President Jimmy Jay Peoples concluded there is a large cache of crude and natural gas buried beneath the Antarctic continent.The oil field is estimated to be five million square miles in size-almost twice the size of the United States and Canada combined-and to contain enough crude oil and natural gas to supply the entire world for hundreds of thousands of years.President Reeder's project, located on the Ross Ice Shelf, presents many challenges. Researchers determine that puncturing the surface of the cache could cause an explosion that could destroy the earth. Not only must they find a way to access the oil and natural gas without endangering the world and transport it safely and efficiently, it must be done secretly according to President Peoples' Accord, a compact that one day shapes and determines the very existence of the United States.President Reeder is banking on the success of the project for his own future and that of the citizens of his entire country.
