Obama to unveil energy security plan


WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is outlining a plan for America's energy security.

He'll give the speech Wednesday morning at Georgetown University in Washington.

During an address Tuesday night in New York, Obama pointed to rising gas prices to underscore the need for a comprehensive energy plan.

Earlier this month, he ordered a report to find how many offshore oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico are being used.  The report says more than two-thirds are sitting idle.

Following the speech, the president has lunch with Vice President Joe Biden at the White House. Later, Obama meets in the Oval Office with senior advisers.
