Obama heads to Ohio to talk energy

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio ” Barack Obama plans to keep the focus on energy as he visits Ohio one day after introducing a 10-year plan for weaning the U.S. off imported oil.

The Democratic presidential nominee-in-waiting is scheduled to discuss energy and economic issues during town hall meetings Tuesday in Youngstown and the Cleveland suburb of Berea.

Obama’s energy proposal calls for limited new offshore drilling and for tapping the nation’s emergency oil stockpile to bring down gas prices in the short term. Those are ideas the candidate had previously resisted.

Obama told an audience in Michigan on Monday that breaking America’s oil addiction is one of the greatest challenges current generations will ever face.
