Wyden Brings Energy Independence Tour to Medford on July 3rd for Public Forum

Medford, OR - Frustrated with high gas prices? Concerned about buying home heating oil this winter? If you have ideas on what to do about it, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden wants to hear them.

Wyden will hold a public forum in Medford on Thursday to listen to what Southern Oregon residents have to say about what the United States can do to become more energy independent.

"In Washington we hear all the time from lobbyists and corporations about what we can and can't do about our reliance on foreign oil," Wyden said. "The Fourth of July is coming up and there is nothing more patriotic than hearing from average Oregonians about ways to make the U.S. independent when it comes to energy."
