Oil free Brazil

Brazil is close to accomplishing its plan of becoming an oil independent nation (article). It has been working on increasing its own state owned oil production as well as spreading the use of ethanol fueled vehicles. The ethanol is produced using Brazil grown sugarcane. Maybe we should look to Brazil and form a plan to reduce our need to buy OPEC oil. Or am I the only one concerned that we get our most vital resource from our biggest enemies?
