Economists are protesting that the Obama Administration’s systematic strangling of domestic energy resources is helping inflate gas prices. Putting the pressure on Obama, the U.S. House passed the Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act today requiring Interior “to conduct offshore oil and gas lease sales and allow our nation to get back on track with energy exploration.” The Gulf moratorium has come with a cost of thousands of jobs as well.
 
Michigan Rep. Candice Miller (MI-10) on passage:
“Today, every American is being hurt by ever escalating prices at the pump and rising energy prices threatening our economic recovery and the creation of new jobs. We simply cannot continue to delay or cancel the increased production of domestic energy and exploration. As energy costs continue to skyrocket, it hurts household budgets and small business and the Obama Administration has not recognized the urgency to act on solutions to bring down fuel prices and leverage our domestic energy resources to bring those prices down and create jobs.”
