Richardson - Oil

Energy Secretary Bill Richardson returned to Capitol Hill today for a grilling by yet another Congressional committee. Today, it was the House Committee on Government Reform. Questions had to do with the high price of gasoline and home heating fuel. NPR's Brian Naylor reports that Richardson — like Vice President Al Gore — has warmed up to the idea of releasing some of the national oil reserves as a means of lowering prices.
