    Yes, the oil companies and their lackeys will be saying that the high gas prices are a result of Obama's decision to stop Keystone, that is why I am interested in seeing if Obama will use this opportunity to push back and tell the American people the facts that:

    1) the oil to be piped to Texas in Keyston is oil that is currently being piped to the US midwest
    2) the oil being piped to Texas will be exported instead of being sold in the Mid-west as it is now.  
    3) That if you think gas prices are high now, wait until after the pipeline is build and the oil companies can take the oil that they were selling in the US and sell it for a higher profit to Europe and Asia, thus increasing the price of gas in the US.
