Comments on: Why lifting oil export ban can help U.S. foreign policy http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/10/06/why-lifting-oil-export-ban-can-help-u-s-foreign-policy/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Laster http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/10/06/why-lifting-oil-export-ban-can-help-u-s-foreign-policy/#comment-1109382 Sat, 10 Oct 2015 20:22:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43980#comment-1109382 So basically the American consumer doesn’t get a break since some people made some bad bets in the O&G sector because We’re-This-Many-Years-Old and “gosh! we never thought the oil market would crash, ’cause that’s never happened before!”

Always deregulate when markets are saturated with debt.

In fact, oil prices have gone DOWN. They are at $40 – $45.

Now we are being asked to believe that exporting oil will somehow…. help at the pump? Help Exxon maybe. These people have no credibility. Let them cry.

Kind of like bringing “freedom” to Iraq. 3 Trillion dollars and 4,000 U.S. Service lives later. Trust these schemes at your own risk.

Natural gas prices are expected to rise by 40% once the exports start. The terrible lunatic foreign policy in the past can not be fixed by lifting oil export bans. The only beneficiaries will be the big oil and war inc.

The uncertainty in the world has not changed.

Exporting American oil would increase domestic price on families who are already struggling.

Why would we possibly start exporting the 40% we finally make? This is another GOP boondoggle to get their own prices back up and screw the public. Again.
