Elizabeth Dole on Energy & Oil

Republican Sr Senator


Release 1/3 of the nationís strategic petroleum reserve

Hagan twice linked Dole to tax breaks for big oil companies that have given back nothing but $4-a-gallon gas. Dole didnít convincingly evade the charge but offered a good retort that Hagan had suggested nothing that would reduce gas prices. The Republican then proposed releasing one-third of the nationís strategic petroleum reserve. The current inventory is just over 700 million barrels.
