Issue Position: Lowering Gas Prices, Liberating America from Dependence on Foreign Oil
John believes we need an "all of the above" strategy to help lower gas prices and liberate America from its dependence on foreign oil.
John has been a strong advocate for environmentally safe drilling and production of American-made energy in the arctic coastal plane and deep ocean energy zones. He supports increasing production while taking advantage of clean and reliable sources like nuclear power and next-generation coal, hydroelectric, and other alternative sources of energy. And he wants to cut the red tape that prevents the building of new refineries and provide tax incentives to Americans who "go green" and make their homes, cars, and businesses more energy efficient.
As House Republican Leader, John is working every single day to hold accountable the obstructionists in Congress who refuse to act on high fuel costs. With gas prices soaring to $4 a gallon, the time for John's "all of the above" energy reform plan is now.
