Anybody who has read this blog knows that I am a firm supporter of alternative energy in every imaginable means. But to help solve out energy and gas problems in the short run, we need to explore and drill off our coast. Oil companies have exemploray enviromental records, and to argue otherwise is stupid because its in the Oil companies interest, both financial and reputation-wise, to stay that way.
Gas prices are already $3.00 a gallon and its not even the summer. Now granted this won't happen for awhile but we need to move on this and get every gallon of oil out that we can to help the people of this state get cheaper gas.
