Energy Development And Gas Prices
Ease the government regulations on domestic energy exploration and production. Reduce our excessive dependence on foreign oil. We have not been self-reliant since the 1950s and are the top importer of oil in the world. The Federal government owns or controls critical energy producing lands in our state that are not being utilized. We are left feeling helpless and hopeless in the face of rising gas prices. Incentives and tax credits for energy development are basic components of a sound energy policy. Utah has lands and resources that can help meet our energy needs if we can have receive cooperation from Washington.
