United States Crude Oil Production by Year (Thousand Barrels per Day) yet gas prices are drastically higher, it's a much more complex issue than simply supply and demand. Israel taking military action against Iran would most likely mean chaos in the Middle East which would certainly drive up gas prices.
The Keystone pipeline would be great for economic activity inside the States but as far as having an affect on gas prices doubtful at best. Most of the oil would be exported to China regardless.
Nonsense, we buy oil from a world market at a world market price. Adding to that market would drop the price, and thus our cost, not to mention adding much needed jobs.
The real truth here is that any real viable alternative energy is decades from being able to even compete with oil, and in order to make it cost viable, liberals must advocate higher prices, and block anything that that would cause that, even if that means they need to lie, and keep poor people from getting much needed jobs to do it....
