WASHINGTON, Jan 30 (Reuters) – The decision whether to
eliminate a 40-year-old ban on most U.S. crude oil exports
should hinge on whether it would lead to higher domestic retail
gasoline prices, Ron Wyden, chairman of the Senate Energy
Committee, said on Thursday.
The panel held its first hearing in 25 years on whether the
restrictions should be lifted, responding to a strong push by
oil producers and business groups who are seeking to change the
policy as domestic energy production soars.

WASHINGTON, Jan 30 (Reuters) – Forty industry groups
launched a new partnership on Thursday to form a “unified
strategy” to respond to forthcoming federal regulations
targeting carbon emissions from the country’s fleet of power
plants and other carbon-intensive facilities.
Led by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and
the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for 21st Century Energy,
the group will lobby local, state and national lawmakers and
educate the public about what they believe will be the economic
impact of future regulation.
