Mr. Speaker, my constituents in western North Carolina and my neighbors and I are really upset about what's happening at the price of gasoline at the pumps.

What we see out of this administration and what we see out of some extreme environmentalists is an unwillingness to tap our natural resources to relieve the price at the pumps today. We've seen out of this administration Solyndra. We've seen scandal after scandal with this green energy policy lending coming out of the stimulus from a couple of years ago and out of liberal policies in Washington.

What my constituents want to see is real exploration so that we can lower the price at the pumps. That's what we deserve, and that's an action that I ask this administration to take.
