Sales takes place in New Orleans Superdome

The Associated Press is reporting; The Department of Interior says it has set a December date for the next Gulf offshore oil and natural gas lease sale - the first such sale since the Deepwater Horizon explosion
and BP oil spill.

The Dec. 14 sale will take place in New Orleans in the Superdome and include all the unleased areas in an area known as the Western Gulf Planning Area offshore Texas.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Thursday that oversight of deepwater drilling has been strengthened and the industry has improved its ability to contain a subsea blowout and respond to a spill.

The obama administration's energy policy is as transparent as the corner 3-card-monte hustler. If they remain in power, this nation will be deprived of its quality of life and national security: they are in bed with the enviro-wackos whose goal is to return all humans to cave dwelling; at least those who survive the longest in the wacko's primitive dreamt-of utopia.
