During previous visits to New Hampshire, Jon Huntsman has not been shy when it comes to talking about energy policy.

While talking to voters in Windham, NH in May, Huntsman warned that the true cost of gasoline is around $13 to $14 per gallon. Asked to identify the biggest foreign policy problem facing the nation, Huntsman had this to say:
I would say that leading that list would have to be our dependence on foreign oil. I think that is crippling us. I think it's an issue that, also, we can resolve.

Huntsman will also be walking in the footsteps of a conservative legend. Ronald Reagan, the man who took the solar panels off the White House, launched his 1980 presidential campaign here. Will Huntsman blaze his own trail on clean energy, or take the Reagan path?
