Laramie, Wy – A U-S Senate candidate agrees that the country needs to do something to stop being so dependent on foreign oil. Democrat Dale Groutage says while that might include more oil development in the near term it most certainly will include alternative fuel in the future...such as hydrogen. He thinks Wyoming could be a major player in such a development. In fact, Groutage thinks its important that Wyoming play a large role in all areas of energy development. Groutage is the only announced opponent of incumbent Senator Craig Thomas.
