I drive upwards of 60 miles a day for my job. While many of us in the East Valley have gotten used to the commute in and out of Phoenix, I don’t think any of us have gotten used to the outrageous cost of gas these days. In the past two months, the president has stopped the progress of the Keystone XL Pipeline twice. He did so once with a signature, and once with pressure on the Senate. Does he know how much we are struggling to keep up paying $4 a gallon? I know that he cites environmental concerns, but isn’t there a middle ground to be met that can satisfy our environment and help ease us economically? I hope so, because many of us cannot continue on the current economic path that our energy policies have put us in.
