By doing absolutely nothing, Congress failed to extend an offshore drilling moratorium that had been in place for years. So how much energy production could this mean? When will it make an impact on supply and the price of energy? What else is Congress doing or not doing to impact our domestic energy production?

Several fuel economy experts say our efficiency drops dramatically when we drive faster than 60 miles per hour. So now there is a growing movement to restore a national speed limit of 55 MPH across the nation. So what do you think? Is this a way to make at least a small impact in our current energy crunch or just a massive inconvenience that really won’t save enough fuel to make a difference?
