American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act Reforms Needed to Help Address Rising Gas Prices

Congressman John Boehner
February 6, 2012

Gas prices are heading back up to $4 or more per gallon, with huge price increases expected in some areas, according to a new USA Today report.  House Republicans are taking action with the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act that will remove government barriers to American energy production to help address gas prices and create jobs.  The House Natural Resources Committee has already passed portions of the bill that will end President Obamas de facto moratorium on American energy and create 1.2 million jobs.  Here are some of the details:

Last year, American families and small businesses bore the brunt of skyrocketing gas prices, as our economy suffered from the historically high premium paid for gasoline.  The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act will stop the Obama Administration policies that have kept American resources under lock and key causing the economy to forgo the creation of thousands of jobs and hurting private-sector growth. 

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) has also said that approval of the Keystone XL pipeline which will create 20,000 American jobs and pump an estimated 830,000 barrels of oil to U.S. refineries will be included in theAmerican Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act if it is not approved before then.  The House Energy & Commerce Committee will begin following through on that commitment with a vote tomorrow on legislation requiring approval of the pipeline, which will become part of the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act once it is approved by the committee.
