Drilling in ANWR

Democrats just don't get it! They--motivated by their radical environmentalist supporters--have thrown up road blocks in front of one domestic energy alternative after another--ANWR, off shore oil drilling, hydroelectric (got to save those snail darters!), coal, nuclear.....

According to an article by Sarah Palin, they have introduced legislation in Congress "to prohibit forever oil and gass development" in ANWR. Governor Palin writes:

I AM DISMAYED THAT LEGISLATION HAS AGAIN BEEN INTRODUCED in Congress to prohibit forever oil and gas development in the most promising unexplored petroleum province in North America -- the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in Alaska.

Let's not forget: Only six months ago, oil was selling for nearly $150 per barrel, while Americans were paying $4 a gallon and more for gasoline. And today, there is potential for prices to rebound as OPEC asserts its market power and as Russia disrupts needed natural gas to Europe for the second time in three years.

Read the case for why we should be drilling in ANWR on the Star-Tribune website.
