Overview

New York Times bestselling author, former Speaker of the House, and Fox News political analyst Newt Gingrich has a plan for slashing gas prices and reducing our long-term dependence on foreign oil.
Gingrich is famous for taking big, visionary ideas and boiling them down into practical solutions as demonstrated in this year's earlier release, Real Change, which was on the New York Times bestseller list for eleven weeks. His new book Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less does just that. Dealing not only with spiraling gas prices, but with the energy crisis as a whole, Gingrich shows how we can safely reap the benefits of America's own natural resources and technology in gas, oil, coal, wind, solar, biofuels and nuclear energy.

Gingrich argues that the pinch Americans are feeling at the pump is not a blip in the economy but a looming crisis--affecting not only the price of gas, but the price of food, the strength of our economy, and our national security.
To meet this crisis, Gingrich lays out a national strategy that will tap America's scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs, and require Congress to unlock our oil reserves and remove all the impediments and disincentives that unnecessary government regulation has put in the way of American energy independence. The energy crisis is solvable, as Newt Gingrich's plan makes clear. His handbook, Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less is sure to become the talk of the presidential campaign season.

    BLUEPRINT FOR GREAT IDEAS FOR DRILLING

    "DRILL HERE DRILL NOW" IS A VERY HANDY BESTSELLER THAT SPEAKER GINGRICH HAS PUT TOGETHER THAT HAS ALOT OF WONDERFUL IDEAS IN IT. THIS SHOWS HOW THE VOTERS CAN FIND ALTERNATIVE SOURSES IN AMERICA TO DRILL TO FIND OIL WITH OUT RUINING ENVIOMENTALLY SINCITIVE AREAS . THIS IS A GREAT BOOK TO READ CAUSE IT OPENS UP THE DISCUSSION FOR NEW IDEAS AND BRINGS THEM OUT ON THE TABLE AND THIS WAY OUR COUNTRY DOES NOT HAVE TO DEPEND SO MUCH ON OTHER COUNTRYS FOR ALTERNATIVE OILS AND OTHER PRODUCTS. GREAT GIFT IDEA FOR A FRIEND FAMILY MEMBER OR POLITICAN TO READ.

    great book and we should do it asap

    This is a great book for anyone to read who is tired of the same old stuff in DC. We have the reserves to be independent but unfortunately there is to much of a not in my backyard mentality that is preventing us from being slaves to the middle east oil barons. We have the technology to drill and not have the nightmarish view of oil platforms that many would have us believe. If we had started this ten years ago we would be reaping the rewards of lower gas prices today. Instead we have to listen to those who would enslave us further under the guise of environmentalism.
