Secretary of Energy to Observe One-Year Anniversary of the Energy Policy Act of 2005

WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, July 26, 2006, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Samuel W. Bodman will join Senator Pete Domenici and Congressman Joe Barton to deliver remarks at an “EPAct at One” celebration. Secretary Bodman and Chairmen Domenici and Hobson are expected to discuss the importance of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, America’s first comprehensive energy legislation in over a decade. They will also highlight progress towards implementing the Act intended to increase the United States energy security and reduce its dependence on sources of energy from unstable regions of the world.

Raise your hand if you believe we’re better off energy-wise today than we were a year ago. Last summer gas was $2.10. Today is bounces between $2.92 & $3.00 per gallon. Nearly every supplier, airline, transporter and utility is adding a fuel surcharge to their bills. The 2005 Energy bill gave $14+ million in incentives to oil companies who are having record profits.

Please will somebody stop this insanity? At least, Republican Presidents Nixon & Ford had price controls and rationing. Then we were upset gas cost $1.00 a gallon.
