ICYMI: George Allen talks skyrocketing gas prices with Sean Hannity

Republican U.S. Senate candidate George Allen of Virginia appeared this week on Sean Hannity's Fox News show to talk about skyrocketing gas prices and their impact on American families. Video of the appearance shows Allen talking with Hannity:
George Allen: “If I am hired on by the people of Virginia to represent them and their voices in Washington, on day one I’m introducing a bill to allow Virginia to produce oil and gas off our coast and use the royalties for roads and transportation. They [Washington] are out of touch. The whole purpose of this is to realize that people are paying $25, $30, $35 more every time they fill up. And you think what would people do with that extra $30 – they might go to a restaurant, save it for their children’s college education, buy gifts, save it, pay down debt….”

George Allen: “…The point is we are number one in the world when it comes to energy resources. If we unleash our resources we would have more affordable fuel, more affordable food, more affordable electricity, we wouldn’t be so vulnerable to outside hostile forces.  We could have a rebirth in our industry, in our country and make our country much more competitive for investment and jobs. The federal government would get over a trillion dollars in revenues without raising taxes and keeping our money here in the United States of America…”
