As the American people continue to weather this difficult economy, gas prices in Indiana and across the nation continue to rise to near-record levels.

The national average at the pump is more than $3.50 per gallon – more than 75 cents higher than a year ago. As the unemployment rate still hovers near 9 percent, the last thing struggling families and small businesses need is higher energy prices.

Yet this administration continues the de facto moratorium on domestic oil exploration and has failed to put forth an all-of-the-above energy policy that will create more affordable energy and more jobs here at home. In fact, President Obama just released a budget proposal that includes more than $60 billion in tax increases on American energy production.

Without further delay, at the risk of causing further harm to an already fragile economy, it is time to give the American people more access to American energy.

  1. It is really sad that we are more concerned with the environmental impact of drilling, or mining, or any of the other things that we do to extract energy from the earth, than we are with the human life that these efforts sustain.

    As is evidenced by the natural disaster of an earthquake and subsequent tsunami in Japan, much more damage can be done naturally than we could ever hope to do on our own.

    Do not for one second think that we shouldn’t be responsible in our drilling, or mining, but to think that we will damage the fragile ecosystems, and somehow that’s bad, is to think that somehow our mandate for subduing the earth means we serve it.

  2. One of the main reasons environmentalist should be promoting the use of domestic energy is that we drill/mine oil, urainium, coal, and natural gas in a cleaner, safer, and more responsible manner than any other nation on earth. It was great meeting you at Faith and Freedom. I was the guy with DL from AAB. Been a fan of yours for a long time. Keep up the good work!
