Plaquemines Parish is the heart of the US oil and Natural Gas infrastructure in the US and the marine gateway to the world for 30 US States.

300 years of development and of even more interest is the last 100 years and a LOT of infrastructure development in our oil, natural gas and chemicals infrastructure which has been developed during that time, which is definitely a matter of National Security...

Like I said just a bit ago, $6 a gallon gas and quadrupled natural gas is in your future... And I do know about the oil and gas industry...

We certainly need the oil and gas, but some new alternatives are opening up. Congress is moving to allow more oil drilling offshore, and a huge new shale play reserve of gas has just been found in Arkansas - bigger than Barnett.

As for the marine gateway - Seems like I heard that a new canal may be built from New Orleans to the Gulf, a new route that will bypass lower Plaquemines. That may be a more economical, storm-resistant solution than restoring the Plaquemines passages every time a storm hits.

So how does increased government spending alleviate "$6.00 a gallon gas"?
