President Obama speaks on energy in Cushing

In Oklahoma to tout his energy policy, President Obama announces he wants to expedite work on a pipeline from Cushing to the Gulf Coast.

                       

He wants to speed the southern leg of the pipeline to ease the glut of oil at the Cushing hub, but says the northern leg…from Canada to Oklahoma… needs more study. He also took a swipe at those blaming his policies for rising gas prices, saying it's concern over the Mideast and not domestic production driving the increase.

                                          

The President spoke at a pipeyard near Cushing.
