The difference in gasoline price between Houston and Seattle is about .70 cents a gallon. In a recent article in the Seattle Times, residents there were questioning why the oil boom hadn’t shown up for them at the pump. I about fell out of my chair reading this.
Are you kidding? You can’t push the oil and gas industry out of your state…stall or kill pipleline projects. Ban refineries and fracking. Crank up your foreign imports to fully half your oil…then COMPLAIN when the rest of the country is paying nearly a buck a gallon less at the pump! This is the problem with the anti-fracking mentality. You can’t have it both ways.
If you don’t want energy independence, get out your checkbook. Or go buy a good bicycle!
