June 2:

"Offshore drilling would not lower gas prices today. It would not lower gas prices tomorrow, it would not lower gas prices this year, it will not lower gas prices five years from now. In fact Pres. Bush's own energy department says we won't say a drop of oil from his own proposal until 2017 and you won't see full production until 2030."

August 1:

Obama would consider off-shore drilling as part of comprehensive energy plan: U.S. Sen. Barack Obama said today he would be willing to open Florida's coast for more oil drilling if it meant winning approval for broad energy changes.

"My interest is in making sure we've got the kind of comprehensive energy policy that can bring down gas prices," Obama said in an interview with The Palm Beach Post.

"If, in order to get that passed, we have to compromise in terms of a careful, well thought-out drilling strategy that was carefully circumscribed to avoid significant environmental damage - I don't want to be so rigid that we can't get something done," Obama said.
