That oil is different only because
it's being exported instead of being sold here.....what is being sold here is being imported when it doesn't have to be. BO's EPA just recently shut down three more refineries in Pennsylvania along with at least five coal plants throughout West Virginia and Kentucky.
Bush didn't intend for ALL of our oil to be exported when he opened drilling all over in 2008 which brought the price of gas down to half of what was by the time BO took office. BO's intent IS to export everything and import what WE need instead so the price can continue to climb and make us more receptive to green garbage.
Funny though how you would need to use a Eurasiareview souce to support what you believe. Couldn't you even find a Canadian source to agree with you?
