Test: LSAT Logical Reasoning

Some arguments for expanding U.S. oil production are misguided. Vehicles that do not burn gasoline will be readily available within fifty years, and vehicles that do not burn gasoline do not require oil production. Furthermore, any job creation benefits from increased oil production would be offset by the negative economic effects of producing a product that will not be in demand. Alternatively, jobs can also be created by increased development of oil alternatives.


The argument is strengthened by all of the following, if true, except:

Current oil production will meet the demand for oil over the next fifty years

Oil consumption causes substantial environmental harms

When vehicles that do not burn gasoline are readily available, they will be used exclusively

Oil will not be used for any purpose after 50 years

Production of alternatives to oil will create as many jobs as the increased production of oil
