    That was the 14th of July, 2008 when President George W. Bush wisely lifted the moratorium on oil drilling, thus sparking the precipitous drop in the price of gasoline from an average high of $4.12 per gallon to a cellar dwelling low of $1.60 by November of that year. Despite President Obama's promise of a newer, comprehensive energy plan, he has planned to do everything but open up drilling on the East Coast, West Coast, Gulf, and the Arctic. When President Obama bragged on "More energy production under his administration than the last ten years," recently, he also failed to...

    JANUARY 26, 2012 Newt Beats Mitt on Energy Gingrich has revolutionary ideas, while Mitt enlists Bush-era bureaucrats. By Robert Zubrin In the race for the Republican nomination, instead of focusing on where the front-runners differ on policy, most of the commentary has focused on their contrasting personalities, putative past malfeasances, campaign gaffes, debate performances, and other atmospherics. This is unfortunate, because in the critical area of energy policy, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are as different as night and day. Newt Gingrich has been advancing the cause of American energy independence for years. In 2008, for example, he published a...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 4/19/20 | Mark Glover
    The good news is that rising gasoline prices might be stalled by a cooled-down crude oil market. The bad news is that the cool-down is being prompted by deep economic concerns at home and abroad. Last week, the average retail price of gasoline in Sacramento rose another 3.4 cents a gallon to $4.15, according to Monday's weekly report by SactoGasPrices.com, a GasBuddy.com website. Nationally, the average price increased 3.7 cents per gallon to $3.80. Prices in Sacramento are $1.11 higher than they were a year ago, and they've climbed 23.7 cents in the past month alone. The national average has...

    The uncertain situation in the Middle East could send world oil prices to $200 or $300 a barrel even as the Obama Administration fails to promote domestic energy development, Gov.

    With oil prices rising sharply on the back of the crisis in Libya, the head of the International Energy Agency has warned crude prices hitting $100 a barrel could be bad news for economic growth. "That is our concern, regardless of the margins of disruption, if the $100 per barrel of oil is continued in 2011, the burden of oil to the global economy is as bad as 2008," Nobuo Tanaka, the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency told CNBC on the sidelines of a major oil conference in Riyadh.

"It's just getting higher and higher," said Nashville driver Robert Reynolds. "It's getting outrageous." "It's ridiculous we have to pay this much for gas," said Tracy Nolan, another driver. People pulling up to the pump this week are likely to be paying 4 cents more for gas compared to last week. The average price for a gallon of unleaded in Nashville is $3.04 cents.

    This week oil climbed to $87 a barrel, its highest level since October 2008 and prompted concerns that triple-digit crude was once again in the offing. This was after a period of eight months when oil traded between $70 and $80, a narrow band that pleased oil producers without hurting consumers too much. The latest surge seems to have been prompted by rising confidence in a global economic recovery, even if most traders and bankers are still cautious about supply and demand fundamentals. Worries about the Greek economy have pegged prices back over the last couple of days but the...

Drill, baby, drill. We have been among President Obama's harshest critics when it comes to the administration's overly restrictive energy policy, so we were pleasantly surprised to see him announce on Wednesday some light at the end of the pipeline. Some light, for many restrictions will remain in an energy policy best termed schizophrenic. Speaking at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, D.C., Obama announced the welcome news that his administration will let lease sales go...

Time for a "Texas tea" party? When you ask for public comment on a major policy issue, at some point you should make the results public, not hide them until you can figure out a way to spin the public reaction to support a conclusion you've already drawn.

    In 1960, a handful of resource-rich Third World nations, tired of being shoved around by the giant oil companies, met in Baghdad to discuss their mutual problems. Attending were Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and Venezuela. They decided to form a group they named the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries -- "OPEC." At the time, the idea that a handful of poor countries could stand up to the "Seven Sisters" (Esso, Mobil, Shell, Gulf, BP, Chevron and Texaco) -- let alone their patrons, the United States and Europe -- seemed like a fantasy. Certainly oil lay within their borders but...

    You read that headline correctly. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration is financing oil exploration off Brazil. The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil's Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil's planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan. The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a "preliminary commitment" letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil...

    Sacramento is so desperate to erase the state budget's $26.3 billion shortfall that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Democratic Legislature seem poised to end decades of prohibition so that they can tap new revenue from a widely occurring natural resource - one dear to many Californians and known for its unmistakable aroma. That's right, Sacramento is considering a budget that would raise as much as $1.8 billion in royalties over 14 years by allowing new offshore oil drilling off the coast of Santa Barbara. As of my deadline, the outcome is uncertain. The Governator points out that the Tranquillon Ridge...

If you wonder why, look to the governor of Alaska.That's right, Gov. Sarah Palin took a powerful preemptive step in August to shield the U.S. from a coming gas cartel. Palin's effort to create the Trans-Canada Alaska gas line — which would provide a vast new trove of natural gas each day to the U.S. — effectively nullifies the emerging gas cartel's potential impact on America.

Two years ago, you said, “Democrats have a common-sense plan to lower gas prices.” Since you took over as Speaker of the House fuel prices have nearly doubled, which is punishing American families. Will you be releasing that common-sense plan anytime soon? 9. So far, your Democratic House of Representatives has done nothing but propose gimmicks. Your first energy gimmick was to pass a law that allows America to sue OPEC, apparently so we can become more dependent upon Middle East oil. This is puzzling to most Americans. Remind us again what that accomplishes? 8. Your second gimmick was...

    Russia and China run on oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy. All the world's great economies run on oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy. All the world's great transportation systems run on oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy. All the world's great armies run on oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy. Yet, Obama, Pelosi and their Marxist/socialist Democrat friends are riding hell bent to leather rushing to convert America to run on solar and wind power. Unreliable technologies that aren't even developed yet. Not yet ready for prime time. Hot wind. Vaporware. Wonder why.

    A Republican plan to open more public land to oil exploration and drilling is “unworthy of serious debate,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Monday. Under pressure from Republicans to call Congress back into session, Pelosi on Monday issued a statement saying that Democrats have already offered a “real solution” to the nation’s high energy prices. Democrats want to force President Bush to “free our oil” from the nation’s emergency stockpile. Diverting oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve “would bring immediate relief within 10 days,” Pelosi insisted. She said a Republican plan to “give away public lands to Big...

    Oily Congress by: Rachel Paulk, August 05, 2008 Following the U.S. House of Representative’s largely partisan vote for adjournment Friday, Republican Congressmen remained on the floor all day in a response to Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to vote on the “American Energy Act”—a bill addressing the energy crisis facing Americans today. Republican congressmen are now staging sit-ins reminiscent of the hippy protests of Vietnam—except instead of flower children holding “make love, not war” signs, these weathered politicians have gathered to rail against the Democrats’ refusal to address the energy crisis. Both the minority leader John Boehnor (R-OH) and party...

    We have the left rattled and on the run. For proof, consider three developments from late last week. But first, I want to make a special announcement. Many of you are probably following the story of how House Republicans are staging a protest in the House Chamber, demanding that Nancy Pelosi call the House back into session in order to vote on The American Energy Act, an "all of the above" energy strategy that includes more drilling, funding for scientific breakthroughs, as well as common-sense conservation efforts. (More info on that story below.) Tomorrow at 10am, I will meet with...

    Blogs for John McCain ^ | August 5, 2008 | brianinmo
    Here is a local news report on Sen. John McCain's remarks on energy while campaigning in the Philadephia, Pennsylvania area on August 4, 2008. The report gives a very good synopsis of Barack Obama's attempt to shift slightly his opposition to offshore drilling, while John McCain is calling for clear expansion of offshore drilling to meet the challenge of high gas prices. . .

Was told several times "There are no cameras on now. Cameras are not allowed." I objected, politely, that the story could still be covered.</p>
