Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, Scott Howell was at the Olympus Hills Sinclair Gas Station today talking to voters about his energy plan.

Howell approached drivers as they pulled up to the gas pump and asked if they needed their windows washed, oil checked, or gas pumped. While helping out, he asked about concerns voters may have and broke down what his energy plan would look like if he defeats Republican incumbent Orrin Hatch. He says there is one key issue he’d like to see get more attention.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has approved a plan proposed by Gasco to drill 1,300 new oil and gas wells in eastern Utah over the next 15 years.  Some of the wells will be drilled in the Desolation Canyon area near the Green River.  That has environmental groups warning of what they call a "disaster."
