Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less.

That's the theme of Newt Gingrich's Petition at American Solutions.

The text of the petition is short and sweet.

We, therefore, the undersigned citizens of the United States, petition the U.S. Congress to act immediately to lower gasoline prices by authorizing the exploration of proven energy reserves to reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries.

As I've mentioned before, I'm big into energy independence and lowering gas prices.

Right now Newt has over 300,000 signatures. Originally he was hoping for 100,000. It'd be great if he could get another digit and hit 1,000,000.

UPDATE: As of June 13, the petition now has over 650,000 signatures.

UPDATE: As of June 17, the tally is nearing 850,000. I wonder if John McCain (R-AZ) has signed? I doubt these guys have.

UPDATE: As of July 3, the tally is over 1,250,000. The goal is 3,000,000 by the conventions.
