In 1990 President George H.W. Bush passed an executive order banning all offshore drilling in U.S. coastal waters. In response to rising gas prices in 2008 President George W. Bush lifted the ban.

Yes, but only if the standards required for off-shore drilling are set and maintained far better than allowing oil companies to lie in environmental impact reports (especially about their ability to contain a spill and provide for recovery). 5 years ago from a Green in Bloomington, CA
