Kiran Stacey Your chance to quiz Jack Gerard of the American Petroleum Institute

Many thanks for all your questions for Chris Huhne, the UK energy secretary. His answers will appear on this site on Friday, January 7th.

Next week, the person in the hotseat will be Jack Gerard, the CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry lobby group based in Washington DC.

This is your chance to ask him about anything: from why he thinks the US should open up more of its land and coast to drilling; to how much public support the industry has in the wake of the Gulf oil spill; to what a high oil price could mean for the recovery.

Email all your questions to by the end of Sunday, January 9th.
