Congress is struggling with the issue of rising fuel prices - as their constituents tell them it's the biggest thing on their minds. The President wants to lift a moratorium on offshore oil drilling - something long opposed by environmentalists - and by Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain. Now, McCain supports the idea.
Meanwhile, others continue to push for the opening of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR, for oil exploration. Some estimates say the isolated wilderness could produce more than ten billion barrels of oil.
But does new oil drilling solve the nation's energy crisis? Will it drive down the price of gas?
Today, Where We Live, a conversation about oil exploration - with Dan Esty, Environmental Law and Policy professor at Yale, and David Ridenour from the National Center for Public Policy Research.
