American Solutions now has over 1.27 million signatures on its Drill Here, Drill Now petition. If you haven't signed on yet you can do so now.
It is incredible that a petition such as this one is even necessary. The latest predictions are that the price of crude oil will shoot up to $170 per barrel, just today it topped $143 per barrel. The crazies in Iran are threatening to shut down the Straight of Hormuz, an essential oil supply bottleneck. As the price at the pump goes up, so does the price of nearly everything else.
Yet here we are, pleading with our so called representatives to do the right thing and lift the unconstitutional moratoriums on drilling and exploration on our own soil. These "representatives" of ours blame President Bush, Republicans, oil companies and speculators while offering no truly feasible energy policies of their own.
Tell them you've had enough and sign the petition today.
