It's like the Congress wants to increase gas prices for some reason. How many years have people been drilling and how many accidents?

This is like a tiny committee of activist students at an elementary school passing a "law" for vegan-only food in the cafeteria. No one is signing off on your virtue-signalling. The House is well aware of how this will go nowhere. Most of them who voted are also well aware that offshore drilling is necessary. They just pretend to care...like most activists.
