Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic
I can just guess what the help-wanted ad looked like for the new head of the trade group representing the oil and gas industry. With gas prices at new records and people fuming about record profits at many oil companies, serving as spokesperson for the American Petroleum Institute will take some seriously thick skin. Fortunately, Jack Gerard, the man named to fill the post come November knows a thing or two about representing industries that many people love to hate... mining and chemicals among them. So, how will he sell the oil and gas industry on Americans, and to congress? We'll ask him. And this is your first chance to talk with the future head of the oil and gas industry in America... leave your comments here.
