WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on President Bush’s decision to lift the executive ban on offshore drilling.
“I applaud the President’s decision to lift the moratorium on offshore exploration. There is no doubt we need more domestic exploration. Every barrel of oil we can find in America will be one less we have to compete with China and
India for or be subject to OPEC price setting. The more domestic energy we can locate and utilize, the better.”
