7/21/08: Drilling for Energy in Utah

By Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City, UT – High energy prices are pushing new oil and gas development on public lands in the West. Drilling permits are being approved in areas some groups believe should be wilderness. Do we have to drill everywhere? How much difference will increased drilling make in prices at the pump, or America's independence from foreign suppliers? Dan Bammes looks at those questions with Utah 1st District Congressman Rob Bishop, Kent Hoffman from the Bureau of Land Management and Stephen Bloch from the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance.
