The Energy Industry is boosting production at a pace not seen in decades.
- In just the next year....utilities will finish work on new plants with the capacity to power 90-million homes.
- Big oil plans to invest more than $40-billion dollars to expand natural gas supplies.
- Oil drilling is at an all-time high. Increased production at refineries could ease record high gas prices....prices some had been predicting could hit $3 dollars a gallon.

(analyst) "explains what's happening with gas prices.


New York Senator Charles Schumer says that while higher production is good news for consumers, its not a long term solution:

(Schumer) "In the long run the best thing we can do and I am utterly

amazed that President Bush is resistant to this is that SUV's and minivans should get the same milage standards as cars. If they did that we would save a million barrels of oil a day which is huge."
In California, which has been struggling through a severe power crisis, Governor Gray Davis charges energy companies have taken advantage of that crisis to inflate their profits:

(Gov. Gray Davis) "You don't charge $1,900 a megawatt-hour for something

that last year you charged $30 for. That is obscene. No one can defend it. The company is named Reliant, it's in Texas, it's a big, big buddy of President Bush and Vice President Cheney."

(O'Looney close) Despite the higher production....the government

predicts the national price of regular gasoline will range between $1.50 and $1.75 a gallon this summer. About 5% more than last summers record high. Michael O'Looney, CBS News, New York.
