Slaughter calls for increased domestic oil production

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Representative Louise Slaughter is calling on domestic oil companies to more completely access oil reserves on lands that they already lease.

She claims that these companies use less than one quarter of the public lands contracted to them.

Slaughter agrees with tapping into the strategic oil reserve to control rising gas prices, but she contends that increased domestic production is a longer term solution.
