The Politics of Energy in California

Hosted by

The skyrocketing price of gasoline has President Bush and other Republicans trying to lift the ban on oil and gas drilling in the waters off shore. They want to give every state with a coastline the option to explore. Since the Santa Barbara oil spill of 1969, that’s been anathema in 
California, but the price of gasoline is higher here than almost any place else. The latest Field Poll shows that Californians are changing their behavior…and maybe their minds.
