Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less

There are only 11 days left to tell the Minerals Management Service what you believe about using the resources that we already have. This agency within the Department of the Interior, chooses when and where we can drill for American energy through a public process called "Notice and Comment." They will decide whether we can drill offshore during the years 2010-2015. It will be five years before they consider drilling again.

Using our own resources will:
1. Create millions of new high-paying American jobs
2. Promote economic security with independence from OPEC
3. Decrease gasoline, heating oil, and natural gas prices
4. Reduce the environmental impact of natural oil seeps
5. Develop oil reserves that are over three times larger than Saudi Arabia’s reserves
6. Reduce federal, state, and local budget deficits
7. Reduce risk of environmental damage from foreign tanker spills
8. Stop financing Hugo Chavez and Saudi Kings
9. Fund environmental preservation efforts with increased drilling royalties
10. Finance research and development in alternative energy

The deadline for submitting comments is September 21. Go to YourEnergyOpinion
and make sure we can drill during the next five years.
