Tell Congress: Open Offshore Drilling, Support the XL Pipeline

Every oil-producing country in the world is drilling in the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico, and along the California coast -- except the United States!

We have more oil in America than in the entire Middle East.

North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3 to 4.3 billion barrels of recoverable oil available, and it could be extracted at an approximate cost to Americans of only $16 a barrel.


Studies indicate there may be more than one trillion barrels of oil in oil shale, a type of sedimentary rock found in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado's Western Slope.
THAT'S NEARLY THREE TIMES THE RESERVES IN SAUDI ARABIA. The USGS also predicts that there are up-to 16 billion barrels of oil in Alaska's ANWR region.

We could, and SHOULD, be back to drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.


We
SHOULD be drilling off of our other coasts (since China and Russia already are).

We
SHOULD be drilling in Alaska.

We
SHOULD be converting shale oil from the mountains in Colorado.

We
SHOULD be supporting the Keystone XL pipeline.

But environmentalists claim that
ALL these actions would damage the environment, and simply won't allow this to happen. Instead of trying to find a minimal impact solution, they simply say no. And because of this, Americans are paying the price at the pump. And Obama does NOTHING...except talk about how we should be drilling, and we should be creating jobs, and we should be less dependent on foreign oil.

With unrest in the Middle East and a President who refuses to drill here, our future is clearly $5 per gallon and higher. HOW HIGH WILL IT GO? $8 per gallon? $10 per gallon?Or...higher?

The U.S. domestic oil industry has pretty much been shut out of its own country by the President who claims he wants to create jobs and ease our dependence on foreign oil.


Every oil-producing country in the world is drilling in the Florida Keys, Gulf of Mexico, and along the California coast---EXCEPT THE UNITED STATES!!

Obama won't issue permits for American drilling, but he has promised Brazil a $3 BILLION grant to drill for their OWN oil... off of our coasts!

Opening up drilling off the coasts, in the mountains of North Dakota and Montana as well as Alaska could
immediately reduce the price of oil.

America could have a sufficient oil supply for the next 400 years. 

Your lawmakers need to hear from you on this issue: please take action with Conservative Action Alerts and your fellow Americans and DEMAND that Congress vote for legislation that would open domestic offshore oil drilling and allow for the Keystone XL Pipeline to end our dependence of foreign oil! Please sign, send, and share this petition!

This is another example of Obama not having the "backbone" to stad up for the people. It should have been done 1. for good relations with Canada, 2. people working on the pipeline plus all the others that would feed it with parts, maintence and because it's the right thing to do. Obama has done NOTHING to help Americans get back to work. He's left oover 70,000 people out from drilling in the gulf but gave Brazil(Soros) over $10 million to dig deeper than we were and then then turn around and tell him to kiss his butt and sell it to China(because they respect him so much). So far I've seen nothing tht would tell me he is "smarter than fifth grader" and I'm sure the kid would win!

We need more oil to bring down the price, or gasoline will go over $4/gallon.

I would love to blame the president for this, but it is not all of his fault. Oil industry has a lot to do with this. We are at 15 year low for gas consumption, diesel is being sold to S. America as we speak. Refineries are at 88-90 % capability. They have cut production to prepare for spring and summer use. Oil industry were the trigger effect on the banking problems today and in the future. If you try to pay your bills and can't decide what bill you need to pay next "what is your priority" bills, home, food or gas!

Drill, drill drill! Think of the hundreds of thousands of jobs that will be created in drilling, drilling equipment, the trucking industry, operators, maintainance and suppliers, supply, food vendors, housing builders, cleaning crews, refineries, etc...AND cheap gas! Rebuild America!
