Mitt Romney challenged President Barack Obama's energy policies in the last four years, providing statistics about reducing oil drilling on federal lands and waters.

"What we don't need is a president keeping us from developing our oil resources," Romney said.

"If we do what I'm planning on doing," Romney said, "you're going to see manufacturing jobs come back."

Romney also said he doesn't think the American people will believe that Obama is able to keep energy prices low, because prices have risen in the past four years.

Obama said, in response to Romney's support of the Keystone pipeline, that the nation has built enough pipeline to wrap around the earth, but they need to work on the other side of the equation to develop renewable sources.
