Dreier Slams Dems Over Broken Promise to Ease Gas Pain

Whittier Daily News, April 23, 2008: "Rep. David Dreier challenged the Democratic leadership to find solutions to high gas prices on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday. The San Dimas Republican said in an interview that he called for a vote on a measure for House members to discuss and vote on energy proposals from any representative. The measure was voted down along party lines, with Democrats voting against it, he said. 'Two years ago Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi said she had a 'common sense plan' for reducing gas prices,' said Dreier. 'We're still waiting to hear it."

"On Tuesday, the Republican leadership, including Dreier, who is the ranking Republican on the House Rules Committee, sent a letter to Pelosi asking for action on gas prices. Dreier said the group would like to see increased oil exploration, new oil refineries and coal liquefaction to expand U.S. energy sources ... According to government figures, a gallon of gas in California costs an average of $3.85, up 53 cents a gallon from this time last year."
