GOP Snake Oil About Gas Prices

Energy experts agree that it's time for politicians stop distracting and deceiving by finger-pointing on gas prices. But the GOP just can't stop playing the blame game.

Just before leaving Washington for this two-week recess, House Republican leaders armed their rank-and-file troops with a 21-page "House Energy Action Team" playbook that directs them to use the media and oil industry allies to push for their single-minded, drill everywhere, drill all-the-time strategy.

But in attempting to dispel what they say are "myths" about energy in America, House Republicans are distorting reality and creating a massive misinformation campaign to advance their pro-drilling positions and help continue to line the oil industry’s pocketbooks.
