In response to rising gas prices, Rep. Scott Garrett proposed a plan Wednesday that would increase off shore drilling, boost funds to develop alternate fuels and produce more fuel in the United States.

He encouraged New Jersey residents to demand that their local lawmakers make fuel issues a top priority.
