The annual expo of oil and gas prospects and industry networking, NAPE Conference, is blasting President Barack Obama and Texas EPA Czar Al Armendariz, a professor at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Tx. for enforcing a stranglehold of regulations against them.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “speakers are sparing no jabs in taking the White House to task for three years of policies that they say have reinforced the nation’s tether to oil imports and kept gasoline prices high.”

Bruce Vincent, president of Houston-based oil and natural gas producer Swift Energy, said, “these have been the most difficult three years from a policy standpoint that I’ve ever seen in my career. They’ve done nothing but restrict access and delay permitting. The Obama administration, unfortunately, has threatened this industry at every turn.”

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, “Vincent and other speakers, including former Shell executive John Hoffmeister, criticized the administration for reducing access to federal lands for fossil fuel production and for efforts to expand the federal reach into the regulation of the oil industry.”

Many oil executives have bee denouncing the Texas EPA czar’s studies on the environmental impact of hydraulic fracturing.

The industry does not have a level playing field with the Obama crowd. From the 1st day in office, Obama has made "war on oil & gas" with his fraud-laden "Green Energy" program that will never last.

Remember this when the lights go out this summer & gas rises past $5 per gallon. November is our chance, or we are lost.
