An Alaska senator is urging greater U.S. oil production, saying the way should be cleared for more pursuit of energy resources in the Gulf of Mexico and the Rocky Mountain West.
In the weekly Republican radio and Internet address, Senator Lisa Murkowski says, "our own shortsightedness and restrictions have played a role" in rising energy costs.
Murkowski says her home state of Alaska has estimated resources in excess of 65 years' worth of Persian Gulf imports.
She says Republicans also support energy alternatives that would lower oil consumption.
