Three-step plan to drive oil and gas prices down fast!
Americans feel frustrated and powerless to solve the oil and gas crisis;
The average U.S. gasoline price is now at $3.15 a gallon, reports Gas Buddy.
"What can be done to curb rising gas and oil prices?"
"We need leaders with the political courage to take on the environmentalists blocking access to massive untapped reservoirs of U.S. oil offshore and in the ANWR," said 86% in a WND poll.
"The key to bringing oil and gas prices down quickly will be opening strategic areas for production which will flush out widespread energy speculation from the market. Serious government action will send speculators running for cover," writes Craig R. Smith author and CEO.
Contact your elected officials to request three immediate actions;
1) DRILL FOR OIL NOW!
Approve fast-track legislation to begin extracting oil and natural gas from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and deep waters in the Gulf of Mexico, reducing foreign dependence.
2) REFINE MORE OIL NOW!
Approve fast-track legislation to build at least four new, strategically placed oil refineries throughout the U.S. as well as building new pipeline infrastructure to deliver finished product throughout the U.S.
3) STRONG US DOLLAR NOW!
Demand the federal government puts a freeze on new spending and reduces our $9.4 trillion national debt and deficits. This action will immediately strengthen the dollar and help reduce inflation.
Will this plan work? Yes! If 'We the People' speak up!
In 2006, the sale of port management, in six major U.S. seaports, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was crushed by We the People who made our voice heard and stopped the proposed sale in the name of national security.
In 2007, The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act never even got to a vote after We the People put our foot down and told our elected officials we demand enforcement of our borders before allowing amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants.
In 2008, surging oil and gas prices threaten to crush the middle class in America as they fuel rising inflation, which will soon trickle down and affect the cost of everything. It is time to be heard again on Capitol Hill.
Let's Change Red "No Zones" Into Green "Yes Zones"
"To bring the price of fuel down the government must quickly pass legislation to open up our domestic sources of oil such as the ANWR, the Great Basin, the Outer Continental Shelf, and the Gulf," said Mr. Smith to WND.
"Our problem in America gets solved when we aggressively go for domestic exploration... if we expand our refining capacity, promote nuclear energy, continue advancing of alternative energies as well as conservation," said
President Bush last weekend, reported AFT.
"For decades, the minority party has blocked one effort after another
to responsibly develop the energy resources our country possesses,
transforming vast areas of opportunity into 'The No Zone,' said
then Idaho Senator Larry Craig in May 2006.
"Buying oil is draining $600 billion a year from the United States," says Texas oil billionaire Boone Pickens, who expects the price of oil to reach $150 a barrel this year, reports CNBC.
Merrill Lynch reports that each 1-cent rise in gas prices sucks $1.3 billion a year from consumer spending. Do the math! $6.00-a-gallon gas equals $260 billion gone from American wallets!
"Each time the dollar falls 1 percent, the price of the barrel rises by $4. Oil prices are high due to the recession in the United States and the economic crisis, which has touched several countries, a situation that has an effect on the value of the dollar," said OPEC's president, Chakib Khelil to FT.
