High gas prices are on the minds of both Missouri senators this week.

Yesterday a bill co-sponsored by senator Roy Blunt was on the senate floor to address expanded oil production and other issues. Blunt says one area of concern is refineries taking time to customize production under the clean air act rather than working on bulk oil refining. Missouri senator Claire McCaskill says alternative fuels is her focus with an admonition. The senate this week voted down a McCaskill proposal that would have dropped tax credits for the largest of the oil companies.
