Neugebauer spoke about some of the fuel issues facing the country right now. He said that one of the most important things we can do is reduce our dependency on foreign oil and start producing our own fuel.

“As long as we put off our ability to [produce our own fuel], it’s going to create two things. It’s going to create ceonomic uncertainty, becuase we get into situations where we have thse high gasoline prices and some othr conutry setting the price of oil. And secondly, it’s a national securtiy issue, where we are dependent on other countries to furnish our energy.”

Neugebauer said that we now have the technology to access oil that was previously unavailable in our country, and that we need to start putting it to use.

Neugebauer also spoke about President Obama coming out in support of gay marriage. He said that this issue has now become a major campaign issue for both Obama and Romney, but does not think that gay marriage will become a federal mandate. He also spoke about the state of the federal deficit and Speaker of the House John Boehner.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News.
