At the same time gas prices have skyrocketed over the last three years:
- Roughly 85% of federal land is off limits to drilling.
- New drilling leases on federal land available for exploration are down 44% from 2007/2008 to 2009/2010.
- Only 2% of our offshore is available for energy exploration with 98% now restricted from drilling.
Sign this petition to ask President Obama and his administration to ease their restrictions on domestic energy exploration and open up more land and offshore for drilling in order to bring gas prices down long-term and ease the additional pressure gas prices are creating for Americans in this already tough economy.
