Mike has a taken a multifaceted approach to help bring down gas prices. He knows the burden high gas prices place on working families and small businesses. Among the many measures he is supporting include:
- Constructing the Keystone pipeline.
- Expanding access to the Outer Continental shelf for more production of oil and natural gas.
- Releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
- Eliminating subsidies for gas and oil companies and using the saved money to rebate individuals and businesses.
