As fuel prices rise, Obama starts energy blitz
Jeff MasonBOULDER CITY, Nevada (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will direct federal agencies on Thursday to speed approvals of one portion of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, in a move designed to ease political pressure on the White House as the industry frets about a glut of oil trapped in the region.
Republicans, who have made the pipeline a key issue in the presidential election, called the announcement a stunt.
Suffering from voter anger over high gasoline prices, Obama used a stop at a huge solar panel facility in Nevada on Wednesday to accuse his rivals of ignoring renewable fuels that could help wean the United States off foreign oil.
