[Music] Female Announcer: Record gas prices, a climate in crisis.

John McCain says solve it now.

With a balanced plan -- alternative energy, conservation, suspending the gas tax, and more production here at home.

He's pushing his own party to face climate change.

But Barack Obama...

For conservation, but he just says no to lower gas taxes, no to nuclear, no to more production.  No new solutions.

Barack Obama -- just the party line.

The Republican National Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising.

Notes: Obama campaign response...

"What we need to solve our energy crisis is an honest debate about the choices before us, not more attack ads that mislead voters about the facts.  There's a real choice in this election between John McCain's promise to continue the Bush approach of trying to drill our way out of our energy crisis - which even he admits won't lower prices this summer - or Barack Obama's plan to provide meaningful short-term relief for our families and to make a historic investment in alternative energy development that will create millions of new jobs, keep the cost of energy affordable and secure our energy independence once and for all," said Obama spokesman Hari Sevugan.
