Do you favor or oppose a new seven-year ban on offshore drilling in the Gulf and along the Eastern seaboard?

A new seven-year ban on oil and gas drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and along eastern seaboard was put in place two weeks ago. The administration lifted the long-standing ban on offshore drilling in March but almost immediately restored it following the BP oil leak disaster in the Gulf. The ban was lifted recently on drilling in the central and western portions of the Gulf but remains in the eastern Gulf and along the East Coast for at least seven years pending further study of what caused the BP leak.

    I don’t think it should take them 7 years to find out what caused the BP leak, but if that is how long it takes then sure I favor the 7 year ban.
