The current administration’s energy policy is out of touch with the American people and reality. President Obama and energy secretary Steven Chu have both expressed that THEY have no problem with high fuel prices, and in fact we should be more in line with Europe’s prices, (which is double ours). Arizona alone is larger then most European countries and the U.S three times the size of all of Europe. We have longer distances to transport goods and any alternative is at least a decade away. Everything and the price of it, revolves around what WOULD be — without environmentalist interference — cheap and plentiful fossil fuels. If the price of fuel doubles it will create a domino effect on everything we do or use, tanking our economy yet again. This President has shown he has no problem doubling our debt, fuel and regulations, and all of this while being moderated by the worry of being reelected. If the President is this brazen now, imagine what he will do when he is unleashed after being reelected? It may be a change that will leave this country with no hope.
