Stalling offshore drilling is costing jobs and gas prices

Energy prices are once again dominating kitchen table conversations across the country – with families facing tough decisions as more of their hard-earned paychecks go towards feeding the pump.

While these astronomical prices are most notable on the five foot signs outside of every gas station across America, they are also notorious for affecting normal day-to-day activities and the price of consumer goods.

Back in Mississippi, concerned citizens are asking, how am I going to continue driving to work or taking my kids to school, soccer practice and piano lessons when it puts such a huge dent in my budget? Most of all they are asking, when will gas prices go down and what do we have to do to keep them low?
