Who’s to Blame for High Gas Prices?

Power Line has a great post on the differences between the Democrats and Republicans in regards to increasing the production of American made gas and lessen our dependence on foreign oil. You may be surprised at the results.

Congressman Roy Blunt put together these data to highlight the differences between House Republicans and House Democrats on energy policy:

ANWR Exploration House Republicans: 91% Supported House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Coal-to-Liquid
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 78% Opposed

Oil Shale Exploration
House Republicans: 90% Supported
House Democrats: 86% Opposed

Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Exploration
House Republicans: 81% Supported
House Democrats: 83% Opposed

Refinery Increased Capacity
House Republicans: 97% Supported
House Democrats: 96% Opposed

SUMMARY

91% of House Republicans have historically voted to increase the production of American-made oil and gas.

86% of House Democrats have historically voted against increasing the production of American-made oil and gas.

So, the next time a bunch of oil executives are dragged into Congress and raked over the coals by a Democrat, remember who has overwhelmingly voted against our independence in the oil wars. It is those who cow tow to the environmentalists and other special interest groups that has made the cost of a gallon of gas so high for American consumers.
