The Presidential Planner – Energy and Fundraising

Mar 1, 2012 10:06am

President Obama will spend this afternoon promoting his energy policy in New Hampshire and the evening fundraising in New York City, where he is expected to raise at least $5.1 million.

The president will travel to New Hampshire this morning where he will tour Nashua Community College and deliver remarks touting his energy prices amid rising gas prices.

“The president will make clear that while domestic oil and gas production has increased under his watch, currently higher than any time since 2003, the solution to high gas prices requires more than increased drilling, it requires an all-of-the-above approach that includes increased production as well as increased efficiency in the vehicles we drive and investments in alternative fuels,” according to a White House official.

The president is expected to reiterate his call for Congress to repeal $4 billion in annual subsidies for the oil and gas companies.

The president will later travel to New York City for four campaign events, including his 100th re-election fundraiser of the campaign season.
