Bush lifts executive ban on offshore oil drilling (CNN.COM)
WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Bush lifted an executive order banning offshore oil drilling on Monday and urged Congress to follow suit.
If President Bush can persuade Congress, more oil rigs like this one off Canada could appear off U.S. shores.
Citing the high prices Americans are paying at the pump, Bush said from the White House Rose Garden that allowing offshore oil drilling is “one of the most important steps we can take” to reduce that burden.
Your turn Nancy.
