His killing all offshore drilling for 6 months is tantamount to keeping all vehicles off the road until it can be found out why Ford Pintos are exploding in accidents.

Make no mistake: the rigs that are “temporarily” shut down will not stay idle. They will be sent overseas to places like Angola or Brazil, never to return.

He has permanently caused job losses in the oil industry.
And at 1,400 people to support each drilling rig, it will be a lot of losses, particularly for those along the Gulf Coast(coincidently, those who did not vote for him).

I dont understand why he solely has this powers. Seems this decision should not be made by one man. Oil prices will go up on top of a weak economy
