"I think there's serious questions now in people's minds on whether or not offshore drilling is the kind of investment that's completely easy and fault-free," Durbin said. "There's some skepticism about that approach. Also, this whole idea of lessening our dependence on foreign oil with more domestic exploration calls into question, well, where will we draw the line?"
