Dennis Moore Opposes Lower Gas Prices

Last night the House of Representatives passes an energy bill that includes a number of provisions that would lead to lower energy costs for the middle class.

The bill includes, among other measures, incentives to build new refinery capacity. Due to environmental regulations there has not been a refinery built in the United States in the past 30 years. The lack of necessary refining capacity is one of the key factors that has driven up gas prices over the past year.

Rep. Dennis Moore voted against the bill.

According to sources Moore changed his vote on the legislation at the last minute, under pressure from Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi.
