(CNSNews.com) – Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he’s had enough of environmentalists standing in the way of energy production over the last three decades, remarking, “It’s just about damn time that we ought to have a national energy policy and do something the American people want us to do.”
At a Tuesday press conference on Capitol Hill with several other House Republicans, Boehner was asked about the relationship between high gas prices and investment speculators on Wall Street.
Boehner said, “The price of gas is driven by two factors. It’s driven by supply and it’s driven by demand. And the fact is, is that supply, most of it, comes from the Middle East where there’s an awful lot of turmoil. People are concerned about whether that flow of oil is going to continue.”
Boehner continued: “Secondly, when you look at demand we’re moving into the summer driving season and the [Environmental Protection Agency] EPA requires 30 different blends of gasoline to be produced, now for the summer months in most of the country. And then to try to produce those 30 different blends and then ship them puts an awful lot of demand on the system as a result. You’ve got much higher prices.” More here:
How about that - strictly logic and fact. Easy to understand ... unless you're an idiot lib. Only took them 30 years to have "had enough." Good job, boys ... you showed 'em how tolerant you are.
Here's some more for you ... they hate coal and nuclear too. They love electric cars -- but they block, hamper, regulate, harass, and confound the companies that produce electricity. See how logical that is? Of course, just because gas goes up is no sign your electricity, food, etc etc etc will go up, right? Ha ha ha ha -- keep voting for Democratics.
