The headline reads “With Gas Prices Soaring, Obama Looks to Ramp Up U.S. Oil Production”.
Aaaand, how many people here think that will last even one day past November 6, 2012?
The only reason Obama is making this move is due to political pressure and the upcoming elections. The moment the pressure is off, he’ll go right back to plan ‘A’ – no energy for America that doesn’t come from “green” energy.
And even this is only the dead minimum he can do to make it sound like he’s doing something about oil prices, as pointed out by John Lott. It is far short of the all-out effort required to solve the problem.
