AMAC: New clean drilling and oil refineries can provide realistic relief at the gas pump

Costlier gasoline hits seniors particularly hard by limiting their mobility and their ability to afford such basics as food

 
PRLog - Aug. 24, 2012 - BOHEMIA, NY – “We’re going nowhere, fast,” said Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens in response to “yet another round of skyrocketing gas prices.  What we need is realistic relief, namely new refineries and new drilling projects unfettered by outdated EPA scrutiny.”

Weber added that modern refining and drilling technologies focus on clean production as “a matter of good business sense.  By encumbering domestic producers with overregulation only serves to increase prices at the pump.  It also increases our dependence on foreign sources.”

He pointed out that pump prices have been spiking for nearly two months and that costlier gasoline hits seniors particularly hard by limiting their mobility and their ability to afford such basics as food, which gets more expensive every time there’s a gas price hike.

“Current policies regarding exploration and production of gasoline are based on liberal ideologies that envision a ‘green America’ at any cost.  They disregard the facts.  We have growing underground and undersea reserves at our disposal, for one thing.  Oil companies have new, cleaner and more dependable recovery and production methodologies.  And, alternative energy sources are in their infancies and could take several generations before they might be ready to make a real difference in how we power our cars.”

Weber scoffed at rumors that the Obama Administration might tap U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserves to check rising gas prices.  “At best, it is a stop-gap measure.  But in fact, analysts agree that it wouldn’t help much.”

The AMAC chief conceded that it is less than likely that any substantial actions to lower petroleum prices in the mid-term or far-term future will be taken any time before the November elections.  But, he said, whoever is elected to lead the country this fall, “he must be ready to implement solutions in quick time.”
