Istook Calls for ‘Thank You’ to Oil and Gas

Former Oklahoma Republican congressman Ernest Istook says it’s about time the nation gave a big “thank you” to the country’s oil and gas companies for stimulating family budgets and the national economy.

It’s what he calls for writing recently in the Washington Times, saying thanks to more drilling, the national average price per gallon of gasoline is down from $3.70 this summer to $2.99 today. Actually, the price nationally is lower but his column for the Times was written before the latest figures.
