Our energy policy is to prevent drilling here in the US that might reduce our dependence on foreign oil and drive down the price. To prevent the construction of new refineries that might reduce the price shocks caused everytime one of them shuts down. To prevent the building of nuclear power plants thus reducing oil, gas or coal use and get cheaper electricity.
