Obama's Energy Plan

From the Barack Obama energy plan fact sheet:

"Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline. Barack Obama and Joe Biden will work with stakeholders to facilitate construction of the pipeline. While this pipeline was proposed in 1976, and Congress authorized up to $18 billion in loan guarantees for this project in 2004, there has been no progress in building this critical energy infrastructure under the Bush Administration.

The planned pipeline would have a daily capacity of 4 billion cubic feet of natural gas, or almost 7 percent of current U.S. consumption. Not only is this pipeline critical to our energy security, it will create thousands of new jobs."
