Learn more about Oil Drilling
In 1990 President George H.W. Bush passed an executive order banning all offshore drilling in U.S. coastal waters. In response to rising gas prices in 2008 President George W. Bush lifted the ban. Currently, there are 3,500 offshore oil rigs, 79 of which are deep water wells. See recent oil drilling news

We should open up the thousands of the gas and oil wells that have been capped over the years. I used to work in the oil field and I know that there is enough gas and oil in the United States to last the world thousands of years. 5 years ago from a Republican in Altoona, IA
Regulate and let the free market determine the business viability of offshore drilling given the costly safety assurances and liabilities associated. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Dallas, TX
Oil driling should be done on land whenever possible. Offshore driling kept to a minimum. Grew up in Santa Barbara and saw the 1969 oil spill there. 5 years ago from a Republican in Arlington, TX
No, end all offshore drilling. I think solar power, electricity, and wind power is much safer, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Little Rock, AR
Yes as long as it doesn't affect wildlife. 5 years ago from a Libertarian in Spearfish, SD
Oil is stupid. There have been plenty of alternative resources that have been stopped from becoming mainstream use by the oil companies so they can continue to make money by turning it into a lucrative business. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Rohnert Park, CA
The key is that the oil companies are private enterprises. Opening up offshore drilling will not necessarily help America as private companies are already exporting much of the U.S. "harvested" oil for a better price which is only profits for... 5 years ago from a Republican in New Baltimore, MI
I would have to evaluate the ROI against the risk involved before making a decision since the US is now an oil exporting country it may no longer be a realistic risk. 5 years ago from a Republican in Spirit Lake, IA
Yes, but require severe penalties for irresponsible/illegal disregard for safety protocols. Corporate officers should be incarcerated for negligent oversight of subordinates actions, as is done in the military!. 5 years ago from a Republican in Tucson, AZ
Susidize people being able to install wind and solar on their own houses. No more nukes and no more discusting wind farms. 5 years ago from a Republican in Wellsville, NY
Yes, as long as regulations are met to keep the environment and workers safe. 5 years ago from a Republican in The Dalles, OR
Yes, but only if the watchdog services will actually do their jobs to keep our waters and coasts safe. Oil should be phasing out by now. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Indianapolis, IN
Yes, but only if the standards required for off-shore drilling are set and maintained far better than allowing oil companies to lie in environmental impact reports (especially about their ability to contain a spill and provide for recovery). 5 years ago from a Green in Bloomington, CA
