Gas Pains

A reader at Free Republic has a good suggestion for dealing with the high gas prices:
"My energy plan: declare a national energy emergency; uncap all our oil wells that were capped back to the 60’s and forward; use the tons of exploration maps the oil companies have locked up for years and start drilling immediately; ban all the red tape for drilling and refineries; tell environmentalists to go to hell; drill offshore in the Gulf and Pacific. As for refineries, drop all the red tape and work non-stop 24/7 with thousands of workers just like we did in WWII to vamp up to win a war. My guess is that prices would drop quickly with that announcement."
