President Bush: “My administration has repeatedly called on Congress to open access to new oil exploration here in the United States,” Bush said in his weekly radio address. “Unfortunately, Democrats on Capitol Hill have rejected virtually every proposal. Now Americans are paying the price at the pump for this obstruction.”
Bush has proposed drilling in Alaska, exploring oil shale reserves in the Rocky Mountains and the Green River Basin, expanding stateside oil refineries...
"Oil corporations are trying to take control of as much land now during the oil-friendly Bush administration years, but are holding off on drilling until the price of oil soars to $200 or $300 a barrel so they can make even greater profits," said Rep. Maurice Hinchey, a New York Democrat and a sponsor of the drilling bill. link
