    Good thing non-establishment Republicans, libertarians, and the far left all joined together to vigorously oppose intervention in Syria, eh?

    How about the US not being reliant on the volatile Middle East and produce our own oil and gas, and become energy independent?

    Wacky liberals say no, sane Americans say yes.

    The National Intelligence Council’s report reiterates recent estimates that U.S. oil production may expand to 15 million barrels a day, more than double current output, and enough to make the nation “a major energy exporter” by 2020.

    Additional production could significantly cut oil prices, increase U.S. economic activity by more than 2 percent and add 3 million jobs by 2030, the report states.

    Drillers including Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK) are using fracking to unlock once inaccessible reserves of oil and natural gas in the shale formations of North Dakota, Texas, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

    The International Energy Agency predicted last month that the U.S. would overtake Saudi Arabia as the biggest crude-oil producer by 2020. Citigroup Inc. (C) in a March report said increasing U.S. and Canadian production would make North America energy independent by 2020.

    “It’s normal for prices to fall in September,” said Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesman. “The summer driving season is over, demand is down, and refineries are switching to the cheaper winter-blend gasoline.”

    "I guess the fact that the US has increased domestic energy production 30% in the last five years is just evidence of a librul 'conspiracy'"

    There would be even more production if public lands were open to development...but Obama's green energy climate change fruitcakes wont allow it.

    So you green energy zealots are now taking credit for fracking...or do you still want to ban it?

    The price of natural gas has now dropped below $2 per thousand cubic feet, the lowest in a decade. Due to fracking, no credit at all to Government or green energy treehuggers.

     Do you want the Keystone Pipeline to be built..or not?

    Cant have it both ways, can you?

    The only thing stopping these companies from going after more natural gas is economics, not some government policy.

    We have too much supply already, and it has driven the price down to below the break even point.  Exxon and Chesapeake can frak to their hearts content, but they won't until the price gets to be around $5 MMBTu's

    Stop embarrassing yourself.  They aren't prodcuing in the existing gas plays at all today due to the low price.  What makes you think they would invest in public lands and add more supply to their problem?

    How will building Keystone XL to transport grubby Canadian tar sands oil to the Gulf translate to increased production in the U.S....?

    Oh, right...it won't....

    The Keystone XL is specifically designed to bypass the US consumer, by running the tar sands oil directly to the Gulf for refinement and export.  By doing so, the oil prices across the US will go up.....particularly for those living in the middle of the country.

    When did $3 a gallon become the standard by whihc to measure the price of gas?

    I still remember $1.80 gas.  When was that?  Oh, yah, that's right. 

    The day Obama was innaugerated.

    It's pretty disingenuous to pin gas prices on POTUS when they rise and withhold plaudits when they fall.  

    I said so when it was done with the Bushes, and it hasn't changed yet.

    Nothing is more pathetic than conservatives pointing to gas prices on inauguration day, 2009.  The American economy was crumbling all around us, and one of the by-products was low gas prices for about 5 minutes.  Bush had the worst record in history on gas prices - all the record highs for gas prices are still from 2008.  

    If you're ever wondering if the conservative you're debating is honest but misguided, or a straight-out fraud, ask him about gas prices on inaguration day.  Does he give you an honest answer or a four-alarm Skeeter?

    Increased production is happening in the US because of fracking...regardless of billions in taxpayer money wasted on green energy failures like windmills and solar panels...

     

    The Keystone XL pipeline project will help keep the price of gas steady for U.S. consumers and businesses because it will guarantee a secure and steady stream of crude oil from a stable Western country and ally–Canada.

    The volatile political and military situations in the Middle East have a direct impact on oil and gasoline prices here at home. Our dependence on overseas oil supplies puts us at the mercy of oil cartels that exist to keep the price of oil high. Like any commodity, the price of oil (and petroleum products like gasoline) is based on supply and demand. When supplies are scarce, and demand stays steady, prices rise. When supplies are uncertain, that uncertainty is also reflected in in volatile gas prices.

    “I’d rather buy from our closest ally and create jobs in America than push Canada to build a pipeline out to the West Coast of North America so that it ends up going to China…It needs to be built not for the benefit of one political party or one state, but for the benefit of America.” — Senator Joe Manchin (D)  of West Virginia.

    Treehuggers are against private sector efficiency and progress...and in favor of Government waste and failure, since the treehuggers often hug closely at the Government trough...

    So, again, it won't increase oil production here at home...just give us another store to buy it from....(albeit sticky and very hard to clean, much less mine for).  What I said.

    I only wish I had similar derogatory term for people who don't care about environmental issues, water supplies, or climate change to serve as an antonym for "treehugger".  (name-calling being the height of debate for CLC)

    That "stream" rivals the line of BS coming from the keystone proponents....

    Duh, it is a pipeline ! So you refuse to build any pipelines, because they dont produce oil, just transport oil....
    You no doubt oppose oil wells, because they dont transport the oil.

    I was just making the point - for your benefit - that transporting oil and producing oil are different things.

    Why I needed to explain this basic notion to you...only you can answer that.

     

    But in fact, there really is very little evidence showing that keystone XL will have any substantive effect on retail gas prices.

    All that environmental risk for a few hundred permanent jobs and little-if-any appreciable difference to the average consumer??  It just doesn't seem worth it...

    ...but then, we don't have to live there, do we?
