Well -- believe it will because it to me it's just quality of life issue if you're putting more money -- your gas tank that means you don't and your family dealing with them.
Mortgage and and bills and and kids.
That's less money for you to have to spend on those other things if -- if you're using it to drive around and we're looking I think it gas prices continue to grow up through the spring break and then into the summer they're talking about well over four dollars a gallon.
You know authority over five and -- we was little we know for sure is -- And cost of gasoline at the pump today is more than double what it was room.

We put -- the gas price compared here and here we have didn't I might have missed it but.
I mean it goes up it goes down but who knows where will be wow look were predicting like in the summer we don't even know.
It hurts other industries to if you can't drive to Disney World you're not gonna stay in a hotel you're not gonna feed your family they're not -- buy tickets yet agreed how concerned are you.
Very concerned because I wanna get people back to work I wanted to get a healthy economy and with -- so much uncertainty about gasoline prices.
That threatens the health of our economy even more.
So there are things that we ought to be doing today and one is the president ought to be approving the keystone XL pipeline.

Total sense that we would want that Canadian oil to come to the United States to be refined here it's jobs to -- -- -- -- -- And the president says no so what happens the prime minister of Canada.
Goes over to China and -- will take it please send it our way.
We're ready borrowing for billion dollars.
A day a lot of that from China when how do you stay strong and independent nation if you have that kind of debt to people whose.
Number one interest is not your own interest.
I would argue that we're not independent because China already owns too much of us and we are dependent on foreign oil.
But the president insist senator that he has approved more drilling.
He and refineries are closing all over the place three in Pennsylvania alone that I know of but he insists that he's done more for oil production then any other president in our time.
And the president insists a lot of things that he says he's done more than any other president in our time in one of -- -- the city was gonna cut the deficit in half by his.
By the end of his first term he hasn't -- still a trillion dollars.
They actually the amount of oil produced on federal land has decreased last year it is up on private land you're seeing that in North Dakota.

And by Cuba you -- -- by Canada off the coast of Maine you see it by Russia off the coast of Alaska.
These jurors were we -- to be exploring for energy not foreign countries.
And I wanted tell people to check out The Washington Times on Friday you had written -- piece about.
The strategic petroleum -- -- has happened to us does.
No it's it's a gimmick the president used it last year and saying he wants to use it again this year the secretary of the interior the other day I asked him about that he said all options are on the table.
That's for emergencies.
It's not for a political disaster what the president has done with his policies especially with -- ZPA -- -- regulations and red tape.
This close to me had political disaster.
The president's very clear he says he wanted to renewable energy the Green energy -- be the cheapest form of energy.
What he didn't tell people is wasn't gonna make that any cheaper he wanted to make other forms of energy more expensive.
