New Mexicans Say “Drill Baby Drill”

Marita Noon of the Coalition for Responsible Energy has an excellent article in today’s Albuquerque Journal. The fact is that, despite the ongoing economic crunch, we still need to be concerned with energy policy and ensuring that Americans have access to gasoline, electricity, and heat at reasonable prices.
Thankfully, as Noon points out in the article, New Mexicans have repeatedly expressed support for energy exploration, including offshore drilling and opposition for increasing taxes on energy companies. This economic crisis will pass and, when the economy strengthens, there is no doubt that energy will again be an issue. That is why it is so important that we continue to put the pressure on our elected officials in New Mexico and in Washington to make sure that we don’t harm our economy by cutting off access to energy, the foundation of our economy.
