Obama to visit Carlsbad this week
President Barack Obama will make a stop in Carlsbad on Wednesday as part of a trip across America to highlight his energy policy.
The Albuquerque Journal has the story:
“On Wednesday, Obama will visit an oil and gas field located on federal lands near Carlsbad, the White House told the Journal today. Further details of the president’s New Mexico visit have not been released.
“White House officials have fired up a new publicity campaign they’ve dubbed ‘All of the Above’ to highlight Obama’s energy policies in the face of rapidly rising gas prices. Obama is concerned that high energy costs could derail a recovering American economy and hurt him at the polls in November.”
