Its the Demand, not the supply that keeps the gas prices high! So check the chart and a new report from the House Natural Resources Committee!

The latest ruse for drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge is high gas prices, but a special report by the Committee on Natural Resources of the US Congress states:

“While the oil industry and some Members of Congress argue that opening more federal lands and waters would lead to lower gasoline prices, the facts prove otherwise. The fact is that the Nation simply cannot drill its way to lower prices at the pump. Other options, from greater energy efficiencies to the development of alternative fuels, are essential to reducing dependency on petroleum fuels and lowering fuel costs.”
