The article focuses on the views of Al Hubbard, director of the U.S. President George W. Bush's National Economic Council, on the economic conditions in the country. He was speaking to the members of the Society of Business Editors and Writers at their annual conference in Seattle, Washington. Admitting that high oil prices undermine people's confidence in the economy every time they fill up their tanks, he said that the problem has been decades in the making. The country hasn't had an energy policy in 20 years, and that there's no magic wand to quickly cure the problem.
