In the  last days of the Bush administration, we are seeing the beginnings of the drive for offshore drilling.  The first state to open up is Virginia, where a potential of more than 100 million barrels exist.  This is the first real drilling on the Atlantic Coast in 30 years.

The question is whether Obama will resist pressure from his left.  Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, and numerous others are pushing the new administration to quickly stop offshore drilling.

Obama himself said he was in favor of offshore drilling in the summer, when gas prices were hovering in the $4 range.  However, many were suspect that he was pandering to the gas conscious in the crowd.  Now as president-elect, will he keep his word, and allow drilling to continue?
