Drilling for Oil in the Gulf

President Bush lifted an executive ban on drilling this summer, about the same time Governor Crist changed his opinion on the issue.

The expiration of the ban does not mean you will be seeing oil rigs off the coast of Florida anytime soon.

The Gulf Coast is still protected under legislation passed back in 2006, and states will still have to approve any new drilling.

It could take years before oil companies can obtain the leases they need to start drilling.
