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. Currently, there are 3,500 offshore oil rigs, 79 of which are deep water wells. See recent oil drilling news

Improve the technology first. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Philadelphia, PA
No, end all offshore drilling. I think solar power, electricity, and wind power is much safer, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Little Rock, AR
Yes, where environmentally safe and appropriate. 5 years ago from a Republican in Paris, TN
Yes. We have enough energy to self sustain ourselves. I have twenty bucks. Why do I need to borrow ten bucks from some Slim Shady who's gonna charge me fifteen cents on the dollar?. 5 years ago from a Republican in Nashville, TN
Yes, but only if the watchdog services will actually do their jobs to keep our waters and coasts safe. Oil should be phasing out by now. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Indianapolis, IN
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
