WEEKLY ADDRESS: Investing in a Clean Energy Future


WASHINGTON, DC In his weekly address, President Obama spoke to the American people from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia about the growing trend of companies creating more jobs in the United States, and also making better products than ever before. The new technologies they are developing are playing an important role in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and saving families money at the pump. Under the Obama Administration, domestic oil and gas production is up, and we are currently producing more oil at home than any time in the last eight years, but with only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices. We need an all-of-the-above strategy that focuses on American-made energy, as well as increasing the fuel efficiency of the cars we drive, saving families money and dramatically

reducing our reliance on foreign oil. The President also called on Congress to end the $4 billion in subsidies to oil companies each year so that we can invest in clean energy technologies. There is no silver bullet to solve high gas prices, but together we can work to overcome our energy challenges as we create new American jobs. Remarks of President Barack Obama Weekly Address Petersburg, Virginia March 10, 2012 Hi, everybody. Im speaking to you this week from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia, where theyre bringing on more than 100 new workers to build parts for the next generation of jet engines. Its a story thats happening more frequently across the country. Our businesses just added 233,000 jobs last month for a total of nearly four million new jobs over the last two years. More companies are choosing to bring jobs back and invest in America. Manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s, and were building more things to sell to the rest of the world stamped with three proud words: Made in America. And its not just that were building stuff. Were building better stuff. The engine parts manufactured here in Petersburg will go into next-generation planes that are lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient. That last part is important. Because whether youre paying for a plane ticket, or filling up your gas tank, technology that helps us get more miles to the gallon is one of the easiest ways to save money and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The recent spike in gas prices has been another painful reminder of why we have to invest in this technology. As usual, politicians have been rolling out their three-point plans for two-dollar gas: drill, drill, and drill some more. Well, my response is, we have been drilling. Under my Administration, oil production in America is at an eight-year high. Weve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs, and opened up millions of acres for drilling. But you and I both know that with only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices not when consume 20 percent of the worlds oil. We need an all-ofthe-above strategy that relies less on foreign oil and more on American-made energy solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more. Thats the strategy were pursuing. Its why I went to a plant in North Carolina earlier this week, where theyre making trucks that run on natural gas, and hybrid trucks that go further on a single tank. And its why Ive been focused on fuel efficient cars since the day I took office. Over the last few years, the annual number of miles driven by Americans has stayed roughly the same, but the

total amount of gas we use has been going down. In other words, were getting more bang for our buck. If we accelerate that trend, we can help drivers save a significant amount of money. Thats why, after 30 years of inaction, we finally put in place new standards that will make sure our cars average nearly 55 miles per gallon by the middle of the next decade nearly double what they get today. This wasnt easy: we had to bring together auto companies, and unions, and folks who dont ordinarily see eye to eye. But it was worth it. Because these cars arent some pie in the sky solution thats years away. Theyre being built right now by American workers, in factories right here in the U.S.A. Every year, our cars and trucks will be able to go further and use less fuel, and pretty soon, youll be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week something that, over time, will save the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump. Well reduce our oil consumption by more than 12 billion barrels. Thats a future worth investing in. So we have a choice. Right now, some folks in Washington would rather spend another $4 billion on subsidies to oil companies each year. Well you know what? Weve been handing out these kinds of taxpayer giveaways for nearly a century. And outside of Congress, does anyone really think thats still a good idea? I want this Congress to stop the giveaways to an oil industry thats never been more profitable, and invest in a clean energy industry thats never been more promising. We should be investing in the technology thats building the cars and trucks and jets that will prevent us from dealing with these high gas prices year after year after year. Ending this cycle of rising gas prices wont be easy, and it wont happen overnight. But thats why you sent us to Washington to solve tough problems like this one. So Im going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future. I hope politicians from both sides of the aisle join me. Lets put aside the bumper-sticker slogans, remember why were here, and get things done for the American people. Thank you, God bless you, and have a great weekend.

WEEKLY ADDRESS: Investing in a Clean Energy Future

WASHINGTON, DC In his weekly address, President Obama spoke to the American people from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia about the growing trend of companies creating more jobs in the United States, and also making better products than ever before.

The new technologies they are developing are playing an important role in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and saving families money at the pump. Under the Obama

Administration, domestic oil and gas production is up, and we are currently producing more oil at home than any time in the last eight years, but with only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices. We need an all-of-the-above strategy that focuses on American-made energy, as well as increasing the fuel efficiency of the cars we drive, saving families money and dramatically reducing our reliance on foreign oil.

The President also called on Congress to end the $4 billion in subsidies to oil companies each year so that we can invest in clean energy technologies. There is no silver bullet to solve high

gas prices, but together we can work to overcome our energy challenges as we create new American jobs.

Factory, n. a body, or place of merchant-agents, a manufactory

Hi, everybody. Im speaking to you this week from a factory in Petersburg, Virginia, where theyre bringing on more than 100 new workers to build parts for the next generation of jet engines.

Its a story thats happening more frequently across the country. Our businesses just added 233,000 jobs last month for a total of nearly four million new jobs over the last two years. More companies are choosing to bring jobs back and invest in America. Manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s, and were building more things to sell to the rest of the world stamped with three proud words: Made in America.

Build, v. built, pret. builded, built, pa. to raise a building, depend, rest, place, construct

And its not just that were building stuff. Were building better stuff. The engine parts manufactured here in Petersburg will go into next-generation planes that are lighter, faster, and more fuel-efficient.

Important, a. momentous, weighty, forcible

That last part is important. Because whether youre paying for a plane ticket, or filling up your gas tank, technology that helps us get more miles to the gallon is one of the easiest ways to save money and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

The recent spike in gas prices has been another painful reminder of why we have to invest in this technology. As usual, politicians have been rolling out their three-point plans for two-dollar gas: drill, drill, and drill some more. Well, my response is, we have been drilling. Under my Administration, oil production in America is at an eight-year high. Weve quadrupled the number of operating oil rigs, and opened up millions of acres for drilling.

But you and I both know that with only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices not when consume 20 percent of the worlds oil. We need an all-ofthe-above strategy that relies less on foreign oil and more on American-made energy solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more.
