Oil and gas leases on Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front pulled from auction

A tremendous effort has been made by conservationists, the state, even oil companies to keep drilling off of Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front. So it only makes sense for the Montana Lands Department not to auction the small acreage of state land, especially because it is in very sensitive wildlife country.

Unfortunately, they only deferred the plan to auction.

    I worry that every time the price in fuel rises that these kind of victory’s will become harder and harder to achieve. I just hope that congress never seeks to overturn the protections afforded to some of our lands in a thirst for oil.
