This article discusses debates in Washington D.C. to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling. Alaska's state legislature is hoping that Pac/West Communications, a public relations firm in Oregon that deals with environmental laws, can gradually eliminate the option. Campaigns will begin aimed at improving opinions on drilling in 1.5 million of the 19 million acre refuge. The Department of Energy estimates that the drilling of this refuge area would save one cent a gallon by 2025.
