    We are already more than meeting demand without the Keystone pioeline as we are exporting gasoline in record amounts.

    Oil is used for more than gasoline.

    If America could increase the supply, that would effectively reduce the price here in America. Forget tax cuts and pay tax holidays. Lower the cost of fuel, and watch our spending go up. It would be a welcome change when I know many people who commute over 45 minutes one way to go to work.

    LOL ... sorry, but 20,000 gallons is hardly an ink dot. They clean it up and life goes on quite well.

    Yet we are still importing 40% of the unrefined product. Which means we are less an influence on world prices still from the supply side. But more importantly, we are spending mightily contributing to a huge trade imbalance, where too much of the ME can pull the strings on our economy.

    That we are refining imported oil and exporting the gas doesn't mean jack-**** in the big picture actually.

    Whose back yard was it in ? Further, just how ruined is Alaska because of 35 years of the Alaska Pipeline ? The liberal leftwad tree-hugging idiots of that generation told us it was going to be an ecological nightmare.

    So, where's that pipeline disaster ?

    It's not just gas that's being exported at record levels but oil as well.

    The same everywhere? Not even close! have you ever bought gas in Australia? Cause i have, and converting their dollar to ours, it was about twice as much per gallon. ( sold in australia by the liter ). Oil prices are not balanced worldwide just because the whole world needs oil.
    I think more humor can be found in your post if you'll explain exactly how much you paid for gasoline in Australia (and when, so that a valid comparison can be made),
    and then tell us how much tax is collected on a gallon of gasoline in Australia versus a gallon of gasoline in the U.S.

    U.S. exports of oil are miniscule compared to our imports.

    If you're speaking of crude, only if we increased supply enough to reduce the price globally.

    If you're speaking of gasoline, the oil companies will not permit what you suggest (it would cost them money).
