Sunlight Live covers gas price hearing


Tomorrow, when the Committee on Natural Resources will hold a full committee hearing on gas prices and U.S. jobs, the Sunlight Foundation will spin up another instance of its data and live-blogging Sunlight Live platform to cover it live.

The hearing comes as gas prices approach $4 a gallon and amidst increasing pressure for more domestic oil drilling. Meanwhile, there is renewed attention to nuclear energy, thanks to the recent disaster in Japan.
Witnesses for the hearing include:
  • Richard G. Newell; Administrator, U.S. Energy Information Administration
  • Brenda Pierce; Energy Resources Program Coordinator, U.S. Geological Survey
  • Gene Whitney; Manager, Energy Research, Congressional Research Service
