Weekly GOP Address with Sen. Lisa Murkowski on high energy prices

Have you checked the price of gasoline lately? The price of gas is 67 percent higher than it was when President Obama took office two years ago. Energy is the topic of today's Weekly GOP Address, which is given by Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Says Murkowski:

The worst part of this emerging crisis is that our own government deserves much of the blame. International events have pushed prices higher, but our own short-sightedness and restrictions have also played a critical role. Some in Washington believe higher oil and gas prices, driven even higher by proposed new taxes, are needed to make Americans behave the way they think they should. Higher energy prices are their explicit goal. They don't realize or don't care about the damage to the economy, the pain to a mom as she fills her minivan, or a farmer as he tries to bring in a harvest.
