Vivian Davis Figures on Energy & Oil

Democratic Senate Challenger; member of State Senate


High gas prices make it harder to make ends meet

Sessions and Figures agree that the economy, including the pump price of gas, tops their list of voter concerns before the Nov. 4 election.

Sessions, who serves on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said he has pumped gas at stations across the state while campaigning.

"I've seen people in Mobile buy $5 worth of gas. That's all they had," he said. "It just drives home that this surge in gasoline prices is sucking out large amounts of our American wealth that they could otherwise be using on other things important to them."

Figures said people are "really finding it harder and harder to make ends meet. You hear that more than anything else--economy and gas prices."

Break our addiction by investing in renewable energy

Energy Independence: My priorities are the American people, the economy and national security, not tax breaks for greedy oil corporations. I promise to lead the effort to break our addiction by investing in tax incentives and loans for the development of renewable energies.
