NRU! "That's what they told us about drill baby drill too - gas is almost as bad as when it was $140/bbl oil, they lie and no one calls them on it. Until energy is basically free here, there is no reason to export it - most of the beneficiaries are foreign" I have to respond to that because you need to realize who runs the country. It's not the politicians alone, it's the ultra-wealthy, the big Banks, the Fed and the people in it and associated with it, Big Oil, the automakers, and a helluva lot of others. I'm not in favor of ALL the fracking they're doing, but the drilling and production of oil or natural gas or the refining of it here is better for prices on the world's markets as well as our own and what we're all paying at the pump, for our electric bills, for food, etc. If they export only the surplus, it won't hurt us.
