Merkley Lobbying Constituents to Stop Foreign Oil Dependence


U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon was in Bend this morning, pushing for us to do something about our continuing dependence on foreign oil. Merkley spoke at the Bend Transit Center about his plan to end our dependence in two decades. It ramps up the use of electric cars, increases travel options and improves infrastructure as well as develops alternative transportation fuels. “Each time the prices jump at the pump, there's a lot of talk about doing something, but then we don't follow through. It’s the same thing as repairing a roof that is leaking when it rains and the next day is a sunny day. This is unacceptable.” Merkley says this year, two thirds of America’s oil imports came from nations that don't share our goals or values.
