Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison Makes Stop In Tyler

We asked her what she believes Congress can do to help provide some relief for you, as gasoline prices continue to rise.  Here's what she had to say:

  "We would do so much more in using our own natural resources if we could get the votes in congress.  We have assets that are not being used.  If we could have more supply in our system, we can bring the prices down.  Right now, we have more demand and supply and the prices are up, so I hope that we can do more exploration--more drilling in the Gulf of Mexico--in an environmentally friendly way which is very important."

The senator said alternative sources of fuel are also an untapped resource which could help decrease our dependence on oil and drive prices down.
