Area Congressman Concerned About Gas Prices

02.21.12 | Bob Price

New York Congressman Tom Reed says America needs a comprehensive energy policy to drive down sky-high gas prices.
The Corning Republican says gas prices could exceed 5 dollars a gallon this summer.  He calls it a tax on hard-working Americans every time they fill up.
Reed says there are several things fueling the surge at the pump, but adds, it would be unwise at this point to tap into the strategic petroleum reserve.
He says the U-S needs to focus on domestic energy production so we don't have to rely on the middle-east, which is in such a state of flux right now.
