Yet Another Way NOT To Decrease Gas Prices

J. Mijin Cha

Here is a list of things that have a direct impact on current gas prices: oil speculation; increased tensions with, and sanctions on, oil-producing nations like Iran; and high levels of global demand due to economic growth and increased consumption among developing nations.

Here is a list of things that do not have an impact on current gas prices: approving pipelines to import dirty fossil fuels, increasing drilling, and EPA regulations. So even though the President threw his weight behind building a section of Keystone that won’t be operational for at least 18 months, the drone of “drill baby drill” continues, and the House GOP has introduced a bill to investigate the impact of EPA regulations on gas prices and delay the implementation of any regulations until six months after a report has been issued.
