Oklahoma GOP Gov. Mary Fallin issued a scathing indictment of President Barack Obama's energy policies in the Republican Party’s weekly radio address over the weekend. Those policies, not a lack of domestic energy supply, are causing the surge in gasoline prices, she said.

“Our [Republican] pro-energy policies stand in stark contrast to the policies supported by President Obama and the Washington Democrats, who seem to view American-made energy as a hazardous waste rather than a resource" Fallin said.

The real issue is a lack of leadership from the president, as illustrated by his delay in allowing completion of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Meanwhile gas prices average $3.93 around the country.

“Millions of Americans remain out of work, but President Obama continues to propose job-killing tax hikes and obstruct the basic energy infrastructure projects that would lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs, not to mention more revenue in state budgets," Fallin said.

“We recognize that the energy industry is a valuable ally as we seek to create jobs and stimulate the economy, and that's why Oklahoma Republicans continue to support the production of all kinds of energy resources."
