Didn’t just happen
The only true group that has caused the extreme gas prices are the Democrats — they have stopped any new drilling or refineries for over 25 years. We have more oil in the U.S. than the Middle East, in places such as Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico and the Rocky Mountains. It is a shame that Cuba, China and Venezuela are currently drilling for oil off of the Florida Coast. We have huge natural gas deposits in the Rocky Mountains, plus huge deposits of clean burning coal but the Democrats have stopped all of this to appease the environmental groups, not caring about the hardships on this country.
We are not using our energy sources in the U.S., and our food prices are going through the ceiling. Why? We are using over 85 percent of our grain supplies — wheat, corn, soy and rice — in producing fuel instead of food for our citizens. Already we are seeing shortages in flour, soy, rice etc. We are also buying wheat from overseas. This is all wrong. We need to use our energy sources and get the dipsticks (Democrats) in Washington to start making decisions that will help our country. Bob Mehr Bellevue,Washington
