U.S. A Net Gas Exporter For First Time In Decades - NPR


The U.S. has become a net exporter of gasoline for the first time in fifty years. Thanks to rising production at refineries and declining demand, the United States exported more gasoline than it imported in December. The unusual development reflects the segmented U.S. energy market the East Coast needs to import gas while the Midwest produces a surplus.

1. Drill here drill now...change nothing

Just because it comes from US territory doesn't mean it will stay here or somehow belongs to us. It belongs to which ever international corp sucks it out of the ground and is sold on the international market.

Unless these morons want to nationalize the oilfields (like Chavez)....
