It’s about time the political sector gained at list of glimmer of reality. This is what those of us who actually follow and think about energy security have been saying for a long time.

BUT – while we should allow some energy exports, we need to really analyze how the new oil and gas supplies can be utilized to maximize their value and energy security. Unfortunately, states such as PA are only interested in maximizing drilling since that is where jobs are – not in production. So they would keep drilling new wells while shutting in existing ones due to excess supply and exhausting these new energy sources in a few short years. That is not how they should be developed.

Honestly, if we keep our oil and gas for ONLY the US market, our energy expenses would go down more than by exporting it. But these politicians are only concerned about corporate interests!

Implying that the oil companies will take care of us is a cruel and stupid thing to attempt to convince people of.
