    The Obama administration has cleared the way for the first exports of unrefined American oil in nearly four decades, allowing energy companies to start chipping away at the longtime ban on selling U.S. oil abroad.


    In separate rulings that haven't been announced, the Commerce Department gave Pioneer Natural Resources Co. (PXD) and Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD) permission to ship a type of ultralight oil known as condensate to foreign buyers. The buyers could turn the oil into gasoline, jet fuel and diesel.

    So Americans now are paying all time high prices for gas because, we were told, America needed to import oil which cost more. So why is this now happening for making it stay here will help lower the cost to the consumer.

    WTF is he thinking? Stupid lobbyists! stupid obama for catering to lobbyists.


    "Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes that you can do these things. Among them are a few Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or businessman from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."

    American's cost of gas is among the lowest in the world at the pump. But consider that we we mask most cost with inexpensive leases to tap public lands, direct subsidizes, tax breaks, security cost for nations and sea lanes for its transportation hidden in the defense budget, and rather lax environmental standards that don't account for regional impacts, nor individual medical cost for respiratory problems etc.

    I don't think it's a secret anymore.
