“The U.S. has more untapped oil than the entire world has consumed in the last 150 years, and the capability to develop these resources safely and responsibly. Developing these domestic energy supplies could reduce oil and natural gas prices, but politicians in Washington have failed to act. They went on vacation instead. Most other nations around the world allow offshore oil drilling. How much longer are American families going to suffer?”
“If you think things are bad at the pump, just wait until you get your home heating bill this winter. But Washington has a chance to increase American energy production now. Federal bans that prevent drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf and the American West are set to expire October 1. If Congress allows the off shore drilling bans to expire, America will be able to expand exploration for new sources of much needed oil. And that is exactly what our country needs-more sources of energy. Drilling for oil in these areas will create jobs, increase energy production in the U.S. and will lead to more affordable gas prices and home heating bills.”
“Gas prices are higher than ever, and Americans are paying for decades of failed energy policies.
But now…after years of inaction…politicians are scrambling to find ways to increase American energy production. In the meantime, federal bans that prevent drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf and the American West are set to expire on October 1. Letting the bans end will open these American resources to oil exploration. And that is exactly what our country needs.”
