Responding to rising gas prices, Sen. Mark Udall will question panelists at a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing Thursday.
Earlier this month, Udall urged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to find ways to stabilize oil market volatility by pursuing free and competitive trade of petroleum products.
“As gasoline prices go up, the impact reverberates through our entire economy,” Udall wrote in a letter to Clinton. “The current disjointed system of energy trade leaves open the possibility of market manipulation and practices that can distort the price of energy.”
