House Republican leaders on Tuesday challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to release a plan to lower gas prices that they say Democrats touted when they were in the minority.
“Two years ago this week, you stated that House Democrats had a ‘commonsense plan’ to ‘lower gas prices,’ ” the letter said. “In light of the skyrocketing gasoline prices affecting working families and every sector of our struggling economy, we are writing today to respectfully request that you reveal this ‘commonsense plan’ so we can begin work on responsible solutions to help ease this strain.”Pelosi’s office did not respond immediately for comment.
Congressman Terry Everett asks: Why? Access to vast oil and gas reserves, as well as our ability to expand refineries and generate more electricity through nuclear power have been blocked by environmentalists and their supporters in Congress.

Though they will blame anyone else, but the liberal activist policies stopped their construction... With very little vision for future.
