Alaska’s US senators are using record high oil prices to try to revive interest in opening the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to exploration and development. Lisa Murkowski and Ted Stevens introduced a new ANWR bill today. There’s not much different in the provisions covering what to explore and how. But what is new is a provision that would set the whole process in motion when the price of oil hits $125 a barrel for five consecutive days.
