I was listening to the Sean Hannity Radio show the other day and he mentioned that former House Speaker - Newt Gingrich is heading up a bipartisan petition drive( see video) to pressure congress to take some action on the issue of domestic drilling.
FOX News did a report on the petition drive this morning, and mentioned research data that "73% of the American people agree that with appropriate safeguards to protect the environment, we should drill for oil off America's coasts to reduce our dependence on foreign oil."
They just hit 900,000 signatures on the "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" petition, and the momentum continues to grow. I went to the Web site: American Solutions and signed the petition the other day. If you are interested and know others that might be, please spread the word.
