With gas prices rising, the rhetoric in Washington about drilling is becoming increasingly intense.
On one side of the battle, is President Obama. He recently outlined a proposal to reduce the country's dependence on foreign oil by one-third by 2025, while continuing to drill responsibly, beefing up fuel-economy standards and promoting electric vehicles.
On the other side of the battle are Republicans and many drill-state Democrats. While they agree with Obama's policy agenda broadly, they say the administration is not moving quickly enough to expand domestic oil and natural gas production.
