    Research should always be given whatever assistance it needs to get moving. Just like with Pharmaceuticals, their long-term investments will pay out via gracious patent enforcement.

    Well it depends what you mean. Look at the spread of WTI to Brent. Natural gas in the U.S. is about 25% of the cost it is in Asia. The equation for lower prices is not only the amount of oil and natural gas produced but also refinery capacity throughout the U.S. and pipelines to distribute oil products and natural gas throughout the U.S.

    If Obama had chosen natural gas to underwrite instead of solar we would be using much more natural gas for ground transportation, which would costs materially less than gasoline, is much for environment friendly and would have an impact of the price of gasoline through supply demand.

    Goes to show you, drilling for oil in the US does have a very positive impact, even if it doesn't directly affect the price at the pump.
    Yep, thanks to large investments in fracking and vertical drilling research by the Department of Energy, we are on our way to energy security.

    And thus another conservative meme is shot down.

    I'm begining to think your a bot, a simple program injected into random threads by a random number generator.

    Or a Conservative trying to make Libs look ridiculous by posting inane repetitive nonsense.

    If its the latter, you really dont have to create their cartoon characterization via internet trolling.

    They do that on their own all to well.

    All this after several years now of hearing how Obama is killing the oil industry and blocking it all over the place. Go figure.

    I would like a law that says we have to use our natural resources for us first and only the surplus gets exported.

    Dems tried it with the Keystone pipeline legislation. Got buried of course.

    Democrats are offering message amendments requiring oil pumped through the pipeline to stay in the U.S. and steel and other materials to be U.S.-based as well.

    Probably because Japan needs our natural resources for their manufacturing.
