After four years of combat between the American Petroleum Institute and the White House, Jack Gerard, the lead representative of 500 oil and natural gas companies, said he is hopeful that the president will keep his re-election campaign commitment to promote the industries as crucial to economic growth and energy independence.

An important 1st measure of the president's commitment over the next 6 months will be whether he approves the construction of .. Keystone

Obama is a pathological liar so predicting what he will do next is almost a useless exercise.

What good is that when pump prices stay as high as they are now? Greed is what runs oil and gas.

Oil Lobby Seeks to Work With Obama?
Big Oil, Big Gas and Obama together?
What's Next - The end of the world?
Big Oil and Big Gas will build the pipeline with or without Sneeky's approval. The southern part of the crude oil pipeline is being constructed now to take care of the bottleneck for transporting the oil to the gulf coast refineries. There will Not be cheaper fuel prices at the pump, the fuel is Not for US gas stations.
The US ‘oil and natural gas resources’ belong to the citizens of this country and are to be used by those same citizens! These resources are Not to be exported without taking care of the domestic market first.
'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the jobs are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population!
More Refineries are Not the answer, Stop exporting fuel is!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Wow so many posters showing they are the south-facing end of horse traveling north......

It is a miracle they can breathe...let alone use a keyboard.......all they have really displayed is they are flatliners from fantasyland.....without an iota of intelligence or a concept of reality.

The only way Obama works with people or companies is do it my way or the highway. Of if you donate enough $$$,maybe you can get an exemption form what ever it is you need.
