Gas Prices Soar as President Continues to Discourage American Energy Production

Despite the fact that gas prices have doubled since he took office, President Obama continues to pursue energy policies that discourage or prevent domestic energy production, forcing our nation to rely on imports from unstable regions. Most recently, the president rejected an energy solution supported by members of both parties, the Keystone XL pipeline, which would deliver 830000 barrels of oil per day and create 20000 jobs, greatly enhancing our nation's energy security. It's time for the president to work with members of both parties on a real "all of the above" energy policy that develops all of our nation's energy resources.
