Carney said Obama has taken “significant action” to expand oil-and-natural-gas exploration while trying to develop a “comprehensive” energy policy for the country. He said Obama’s approach has been to achieve energy policy “responsibly,” and that drilling alone will not fix the problem.
The White House spokesman said Obama’s “all of the above” approach will “build a foundation for energy security in the future so that we are not as vulnerable to the kinds of price shocks that we get when oil climbs as it is now.”
Obama will speak about the approach Thursday during a visit to Miami.
