Nothing To See Here: The futility of drilling, per President Obama? (Updated)

From a recent speech by President Barack Obama:
If we drilled every square inch of this country — so we went to your house and we went to the National Mall and we put up those rigs everywhere — we’d still have only 2 percent of the world’s known oil reserves.
The error should be easy to spot for anyone who's looked into the issue of oil exploration.

While that ought to suggest that PolitiFact will rate this statement, I judge it unlikely that PolitiFact will rate it.

The Washington Post's fact checker scores with a March 15 item.  PolitiFact has yet to publish on this one.
