    enough empty space through the empty suit. But hey, he will make it happen…after the elections. After Warren Buffets oil trains crashed yet again he invested in the pipe line. So like I said it will happen by the end of the year. The smoke signals can now be seen.

    The midterms are NOT looking good for the party that’s currently holding the White House (of course, I’m not altogether sure which party that is).

    I was just reading an article yesterday telling how new pipe lines relieved the oil glut in Cushing, OK by allowing US oil to make it to coast refineries and be sold on the international market. They cited this as one of the main reason the price of gas has been going up so sharply in the US.They also expected the trend to continue since the gas/gasoline market in the US is now able to service the world market where prices are a lot higher. It is very unclear why Keystone will do anything for the US consumer. It gives Canadian oil a path to the international market an decreases the capacity of a limited number of US refineries to supply the US. No one in the US is building a new refinery. It is also the one area where Republicans and Democrats cooperate, they both want high prices for different reasons.

    the idea that keystone will lower gas prices in the US, ignores the fact that higher profits can be made selling outside the US. At what point do people expect corporations to NOT chase the biggest profits? Keystone makes exporting MORE cost effective, not less.

    The fact that the oil companies refuse to implement “voluntary” safer oil cars has a lot to do with it. Poor oil companies, where will they EVER get the money to run their businesses safely?

    The transAlaska pipeline did not drop fuel prices in Alaska, in fact it is still cheaper to use oil refined elsewhere and shipped here than to use in state refineries.

    The reason this happens has nothing to do with economic business practice, but rather the direction the businesses want to go in the future, with full cooperation from the regulators.

    Want the price of oil to go down?Stop buying all the stuff you own made from plastic.Start with your computer and the naugahyde covered chair your sitting in.Then all the food you buy packaged in plastic.
    I’ve seen plenty of ships loaded with crude oil and refined products being unloaded.Never saw one being loaded with crude to go overseas.
    What gets exported is plastic beads,pellets or flakes in 2500 pound sacks to places that make all those plastic things that you own.
    If the pipeline gets built maybe some of the 100,000 refinery workers that got laid off would get their jobs back and become tax payers again.So they could support all the do nothings at the projects down the road from every one in America.
    The reason they aren’t building refineries in the US is that the EPA won’t let them.Some of the older ones have been taxed,fee’d and fined out of exsistance.

    Prices are tending to rise because oil supplies are being restricted from entering the U.S. Long run, increase oil supplies on the market and prices decline. Short run, imbalances in storage and transportation can produce bottlenecks that temporarily depress prices in localized areas, as happened when there was insufficient transport capacity from Cushing to the Coast.

    A lot of the increases in price for fossil fuels is created by speculators"
    This is true. Tell them that Alaska is open! The gulf is open. Off the coast is open. Fracking is on the table in all the States like NY is open. We acknowledge the 98% scrubbers in coal plants is alright and Obama can not bankrupt new coal like he said he would. That Obama can not keep doing what he is doing “for our own good” like he said before being elected that gas should be 5$ a gallon.
    Do all that and the speculators would drop the price the next day! it would take less then a month for gas to be in the same price range as Bush. Below 2 and maybe 1$ a gallon by the end of the year!
