He says during his presser that he vows to keep the moratorium on offshore drilling for oil.

“Believe me – if I thought that there was any evidence at all that drilling could save people money who are struggling to fill up their tanks by this summer or this year or even the next few years, I would consider it. But it won’t. And John McCain knows that.”
