Exclusive: From Seoul to Mexico City, pressure mounts to ease U.S. oil export ban

WASHINGTON/SEOUL (Reuters) – Washington is facing growing international pressure to ease its long standing ban on crude oil exports, with South Korea and Mexico joining the European Union in pressing the case for U.S. oil shipments overseas.

Texas lawmaker Barton backs lifting oil export ban despite peers’ misgivings

WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters) – A senior U.S. Congressman
from Texas has come out in full support of the United States
lifting the 40-year old ban on crude oil exports, putting him at
odds with fellow House Republicans wary of weighing in on the
controversial issue.

Rep. Joe Barton, who until now has maintained a relatively
neutral public stance on a topic that has divided Republican
members of the House energy and commerce committee, told Reuters
in a statement that the time was right for the United States to
overhaul its long-standing restrictions on exporting crude oil.
