    POLIQUIN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. POLIQUIN. Mr. Speaker, compared to last summer, hardworking Maine families are saving $20 with every fill-up of their vehicles. The $1,000 annual savings is buying almost 2 months of groceries for a family of four.

    This winter, many of our families are saving an additional $1,000 because the cost of heating oil has plummeted. That is another 2 months of groceries.

    Last week, I was proud to join House Republicans and Democrats to finally approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Our families will have more money, have more jobs, and enjoy more freedom when America increases the production and transportation of all forms of domestic energy and do it in an environmentally sensitive way.

    Increase production, and drive down price.

    Now, the House has done its job to approve the Keystone pipeline. I respectfully ask the Senate to do the same; then together, we must ask the President to do his part.

    It is the right thing to do for more jobs, fatter paychecks, and more security.
