HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama's energies policies and said his rival "has not been Mr. Oil or Mr. Gas or Mr. Coal."
The pair sparred on energy policy as they met Tuesday for their second debate, a town hall-style meeting with undecided voters in New York.
Obama says he wants U.S. energy policy to look ahead 20 or 30 years, and not just look at what lowers the cost right away. The president says he's all for oil and natural gas, but he says he will not focus on them exclusively at the peril of renewable energy sources that could create thousands of jobs.
Romney says Obama has fought new energy exploration on federal lands and that Americans have faced higher energy costs as a result.
