Rick Santorum

Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum


Santorum position on Energy

America’s energy policy is critical to our national security and economic growth. Dependence upon foreign sources of oil limits our national security options, undermines our interests, and raises the cost of doing business in America. Unfortunately, President’s Obama’s approach has facilitated foreign dependence by restricting oil and gas drilling, making it more difficult to get nuclear permits, and picking winners and losers through failed pet energy projects. We must employ a policy that makes energy more affordable, makes our nation more secure by lessening dependence on unreliable or adversarial foreign sources, and increases conservation through efficient use and diverse energy sources. An effective energy policy will expand economic development and create high-quality jobs, resulting in a strong economy for America’s families and workers. It is time to get serious about unleashing America’s domestic energy sources.

“I think this is one of the most important discussions we have to have this election. It is vitality important for our economic prosperity and it is vitally important from the standpoint of our national security. Let me just address both, as briefly as I can.

We’re seeing obviously the effects of high gasoline prices on the economy right now and obviously on all of lives as we drive – when we have seven kids, I assure you I drive a lot. And we use a lot of gasoline. Not big cars, not because I like big cars, because I can’t put my family in anything other than a big car.

So, having a policy that reduces the price of oil in particular, is essential. What has been the policy of this administration? To shut up, to not drill in ANWR to not drill in deep water, to not drill offshore, to not drill on oil sands – to make it expensive to drill where we do drill and deny permits where we can drill. That’s the policy of this administration.”
July 22, 2011: Santorum speaking at the Iowa Energy Forum
