Pickens criticizes API report


As reported by Rod Walton in Tulsa World, T. Boone Pickens, criticized the latest energy report by the America Petroleum Institute (API).  

“No one should be fooled by this report or surprised by its focus,” Pickens said in a statement after API President and CEO Jack Gerard’s address at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “This is, after all, a group that includes and represents foreign oil companies, interests and holdings.

“The API ignores the fact that you cannot address the national security and economic threat of OPEC dependency without focusing on transportation; that accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. oil use.”

One things for certain–we really don’t have a cohesive energy policy in this country.  Here’s hoping for change in 2011?
