Keystone just moves oil to "tax-exempt refineries" that export gas to Asia and South America. No revenue for the United States.

President Obama doing excellent job! North part of Keystone would be a negative to US citizens. The sludge out of Canada would be piped through our U.S. states (under dangerously high pressure) down to Houston export oil refineries then out to the Gulf shipped for export to OTHER countries.
Gas prices are high thanks to republican deregulation which allows commodities to be manipulated by the rich tycoons. Democrats have tried in recent years to pass regulations to protect you the consumer from this price gouging,,,, but thanks to your retaliation against Obama by voting in those Koch back tea party puppets into the House, they immediately wiped out that regulations bill and anything else that threatens those weathly giants from sucking the life out of the middle classs.
So you got what you voted for in last elections.... so gas up, and fork it over.

I think a lot of this is just because they can charge the high price and there is nothing we can do about it.

"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Coal-powered plants, you know, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers."

Because they can charge it and who is there to stop them?

But President Urkel (Obama) does effect the price everytime he runs his mouth on the pipeline or drilling talk when he spills out of his mouth that word 'NO'...very negitive!

Oil still comes from volatile, unfriendly places and is becoming harder to find. So, gas goes up.
