Obama Talks Energy Policy, Wraps Up Oklahoma Trip

Posted: Updated:
CUSHING, Oklahoma -

President Obama wrapped up his trip to Oklahoma at the TransCanada pipe yard in Cushing Thursday morning.

Around 200 supporters were on hand for the President's speech, all part of his three-state tour outlining his stance on energy policy. In his speech President Obama tried to make it clear that his administration is "fossil fuel friendly" and interested in the pursuit of green energy sources.

The President said that he wants to fast track the southern leg of the pipeline, that's the stretch from Cushing to the Gulf of Mexico. To make things easier, President Obama says his office will clear any red tape involved in the project.

The President said he is not opposed to making it easier to move oil across the country, he only wants to be able to do it without harming the environment.

It was President Obama's first trip to Oklahoma since taking office. His next stop after leaving Oklahoma was to Columbus, Ohio.
