ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the differences of U.S. Senate Democrats on issues associated with the passing of an energy legislation that would address the rising prices of gasoline. According to the author, the differing views of Democrats on the issue of climate change and liquefied coal could create similar roadblocks that impaired the Republicans in 2005. Meanwhile, the Democrats are working to finalize a broad package which Senate Majority leader Harry Reid is stitching from various committees.
