There are so many ways that we could lower prices. Until we can find feasible ways to lower or dependence on fossil fuels. We need to lower our dependency on foreign oil. The pipeline that would have brought in crude for refinement, needs to be put back in the plans. It would employ LOTS of people during construction and help the economy in many areas that is would pass through. Drilling needs to be started back in the Gulf. I am all for taking care of the environment, but we are importing oil from some of those that are responsible for the death of or citizens. Drilling needs to be happening in other places like Alaska and off the coast of California. Pacific drilling would eliminate the need for enlarging current pipelines.
All of the money that has recently been invested and lost in alternative energies would have been much better spent by offering solar panels at affordable prices. Tax incentives for solar panels and windmills would help as well.
Donít tell the Lord how big the problem is, tell the problem how big the Lord is.
