What's Up With Congress and Gas Prices?

Talifaitasi W. Satele

I hate to jump on bandwagons here, but I have to join the Republicans still holed up in Congress protesting the decision by Democrats to allow the legislature to go on vacation without taking any action on gas prices. Not that Republicans are admiring free-marketeers (which most of them are not), but at least they’re highlighting an energy solution I agree with, and that’s to increase energy supplies.

Get this: Big Oil companies want to use their profits to increase supplies but Congress chooses to stand in their way. Why?

I believe Faleomavaega owes the people of American Samoa an explanation as to why his party is blocking off-shore drilling and nuclear energy and what he has done (if anything) to persuade them otherwise.
