"Bush Calls for End to Ban on Offshore Oil Drilling"

Sheryl Gay Stoleberg

New York Times Online


Published: June, 19, 2008 Accessed: Sep.25.08


One of the ongoing conflicts that Americans struggle with today is the decision to part take in offshore drilling. The central idea of offshore drilling is to both lower gasoline prices and to slowly encourage the Unites to become less dependent on foreign countries natural resources. In Mid July, President Bush addressed this issue by stressing that importance to act immediately before the American people can no longer afford these increasing prices. As many were skeptical at first, we have seen that this has clearly changed since the gasoline prices show no sign in decreasing. When presented with the plan to drill off of the United States, the Democratic Party was immediately opposed. But recently with the Presidential election going on, this topic is imperative and in this case both parties have shown and stated that Oil Drilling must be considered in the future, in order to relieve economic stress on the American People.
