Drilling Down

August 2008
New Republic;8/27/2008, Vol. 239 Issue 3, p1
The article discusses how the petroleum industry's drop in gasoline prices was influenced by the U.S. Republican Senators' arguments for drilling, and how those affected U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama and leader Nancy Pelosi to quiet their arguments against drilling. U.S. Conservative leaders such as John Shadegg came across as sensible while the Democratic stance against drilling and their entire environmental policy seemed illogical.
