Mr. President, Unleash the Power of American Energy Exploration

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

(Mr. NUNNELEE asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.)

Mr. NUNNELEE. Yesterday, President Obama executed a shortsighted energy plan and released 30 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, all while the United States' combined recoverable oil, natural gas, and coal resources are 1.3 trillion barrels of oil equivalent, the largest in the world.

We have 40,000 times more American natural resources under our ground than the amount President Obama took out of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Drawing down reserves intended for national emergencies is far from the energy plan we need, especially when we're sitting on abundant resources. President Obama must quit blocking American energy production.

Mr. President, if you want to make us energy secure, if you want to see a thriving economy creating jobs, if you want to free Americans from the burden of high gas prices, unleash the power and ingenuity of American energy exploration, and do it now.
