Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

As a new poll shows more Americans are holding President Obama responsible for soaring gas prices, the president Monday trumpeted a report from his own administration that  praises him for reducing the country’s reliance on foreign oil.

“We have made progress, with imports of foreign oil decreasing by a million barrels a day in the last year alone,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “Our focus on increased domestic oil and gas production, currently at an eight-year high, combined with the historic fuel economy standards we put in place, means that we will continue to reduce our nation’s vulnerability to the ups and downs of the global oil market.”
