  •  When I was researching the KXL (10+ / 0-)

    I found out that the first two phases of Keystone have been on line since 2010, and the oil currently goes to refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma and then sold as gasoline across the midwest.
    TransCanada has said that once Phase 3 is built (the shortcut across Nebraska and Kansas and the final leg to Port Arthur,TX), that the refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma will have to pay a premium of 10 to 15 cents a barrel to have oil diverted to the midwest. So guess what's happening to our oil prices?

      I still consider the whole Keystone pipeline thing the height of controversy.  As you note -- the real question is whether the stuff will go easily and cheaply overseas instead of to the US.

      If people REALLY wanted to make a statement, one that might actually help, they would move to stop the use of tar sand oil within the US.
