They stop us from saving 3-4 cents in 15-20 years! (The effect of lifting the offshore drilling moratorium was analyzed by the Energy Information Administration at the U.S. Dep. of Energy. The EIA found that access to the Pacific, Atlantic, and eastern Gulf of Mexico regions would increase domestic oil production by 1.6 percent between 2012 and 2030. The Natural Resources Defense Council has estimated the price of oil would only drop about 3–4 cents in 15 to twenty years.)
Verses the current disaster:
Louisiana fishing industry could take a $2.5B hit
Gulf shrimp industry could lose $500M Florida’s Gulf Coast could lose $3B in tourist dollars
Cleanup cost could exceed $3B, depending on duration of spill
Seems like a no-brainer to me
