The Obama administration today said a proposal from House Natural Resources Chairman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) to expedite oil and gas leasing and energy infrastructure permitting in an Alaska reserve could force federal regulators to flout environmental laws and includes a costly, redundant resource assessment.

High oils prices = high gas prices = high transportation prices = high food and retail prices for the poor and middle class. You know....... allowing drilling again in Alaska and elsewhere would create a lot of jobs...... and I would think lower fuel prices.....so why is Obama against it, except pandering to environmentalists?

It would'nt matter if we opened up all of Alaska to drilling today. It would still takes years for the oil to hit the markets. It would'nt lower gas prices one cent. You do realize we consume three times the oil we produce every day. If we tapped every available barrel of oil in this country we would still need to import oil.
