Energy isn't easy. It isn't easy to produce the affordable, abundant, safe, and secure energy our nation needs today; and it certainly isn't easy to put the policies in place to ensure that we can continue that production in the future. However, there is one thing that is easy; telling everyone what they want to hear, while actually doing nothing. And a review of recent developments indicates that some politicians are trying to protect their jobs by adopting conflicting or incoherent positions that threaten the jobs of others:

There's a photo of a large gasoline-price sign making the rounds on the Internet this week. Instead of listing the retail prices, it advertises the pump price of regular gas as "LOL"; the price of midgrade is listed as "OMG"; and premium is "WTF." Although some might say the photo is amusing, for those on a limited budget, the rapid climb in the price of gasoline is alarming.

The U.S. State Department is evaluating a permit application to extend TransCanada's Keystone Pipeline to refineries in the U.S. Gulf Coast.

America has always been a frontier nation. From the wilds of New England and Virginia we crossed the continent, plumbed the depths of the oceans and launched ourselves high into space in the pursuit of opportunity.
