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

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
Yes, but oil spill cleanup should not be a tax break, this should be an after-tax deduction from profits on top of all costs for the cleanup and compensation. 5 years ago from a Green in Huntingdon, PA
