    the marketing for these pipelines is completely and utterly dishonest.  the people who want to build them are just about desperate to get their products to a coast so that they can ship them to other countries where the price is higher.  they market fracking and pipelines telling us that "energy independence" will keep the prices of energy low, but then they try to get the export bans lifted so that they can jack up prices.

    keystone xl will raise prices in wisconsin and minnesota by diverting oil away to the gulf coast.  of course, the real problem is that we need to get off of oil and gas right now.  energy investment needs to be going into renewables, not in developing fossil fuel infrastructure.
