Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley is using increasing gas prices to promote the need to eliminate America’s dependence on foreign oil. His bill introduced last year would eliminate dependence on overseas oil by 2030. He says he's getting a positive reaction from Oregonians. “It has been universally positive. I think folks are finally realizing that we're sending our funds to Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq, makes no sense. It impoverishes Americans and that means we don't have the dollars circulating here.” Oil has been trading at more than $100 a barrel for the last couple days. The average cost for gas in the country is $3.34 a gallon.
