Drill for Oil on the Leases Already Allocated

72 Signatures Goal: 100

There are nearly 68 million acres of federal land under lease to petroleum companies that not being drilled. Only 20 percent of the acres leased offshore are being used for production and about 30 percent of the onshore territory. Oil companies have yet to drill in the 39 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico already available to them. If the present oil companies cannot produce oil from these leases, let someone else try. We, therefore, the undersigned citizens of the United States, petition the U.S. Congress to act immediately to lower gasoline prices (and diesel and other fuel prices) by authorizing fees on the oil industry on the public lands where they do not drill, where the American people have already given them an opportunity to drill. Also, tell Congress to increase the fees as the years go by in order to reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries.
