Newt and Calista Gingrich, please report to the south coast of the US for cleanup duty.

The problem isn't that you're paying too much for petrol Newt, its that you'd rather spend time and effort drilling in the middle of the friggen ocean instead of developing alternatives, all under a thin veil of patriotism. Any temporary reduction in prices would only provide temporary relief, and would do nothing to solve either the energy crisis of which you speak, or energy independence.

I'm assuming he wasn't being sarcastic, if you were sir then please disregard.
