Lower Gas Prices, Drilling Will Not Help

Lower Gas Prices, Drilling Will Not Help

By SOP newswire2

Hi Judyth,

Senator John McCain just seems to get more and more similar to George Bush.

This time, McCain is pushing for offshore drilling at home, a solution that is not only damaging to the environment, but won`t help lower our gas prices.

Tell John McCain you don`t want another four years of failed energy policy!

As he tries to keep his oil industry donors happy, McCain feigns concern about environmental issues and global warming. But the Bush Administration`s department of energy itself has reported that offshore drilling will have no effect on gas prices! They said that two decades from now, we could see a lowering of gas prices by four cents.

So lifting the moratorium on drilling would destroy our last pristine wilderness in order to make some political statement that they`re doing something about gas prices.

Tell John McCain you see through his ridiculous proposal, and that you won`t let go of our precious wilderness!
