KNAPP: Time running out to protect the Atlantic Coast

By Frank Knapp Jr.  |  President Trump recently proclaimed that his administration is seeking “American energy dominance.”  The reality is we’re already there.

The United States produces more natural gas and oil than any other nation.  We do import about 25 percent of our oil needs, mostly from Canada and Mexico.  However, that’s only because we export about one million gallons a week of the type of domestically-produced oil we don’t want.  The U.S. is beholding to no other country for our energy security.

If these facts come as a surprise to you, then you are ripe for being deceived by those who want to use air gun blasting to explore for oil and gas off the Atlantic Coast.
