Our own Sen. Jeff Bingaman has been drawing accolades for his speech before the senate March 17 on gasoline and oil prices.
Among many who reviewed his speech, David Roberts of grist.com called his speech “a beam of light ..., which didn’t get the attention it deserved.
Bingaman is not normally a talky guy. Nor is he given to grand political gestures. He’s cautious by temperament (to a fault, I’d argue).
Despite his reticence, though, he is among the very few senators who actually understand energy.”
After explaining that gas prices are affected primarily by factors beyond our borders, Sen. Bingaman reached the (probably inescapable) conclusion: “I think a realistic, responsible answer has to be focused on becoming less vulnerable to oil price changes over the medium- and long-term. And we become less vulnerable by using less oil.”
