Share cheaper fuel prices at the pump and NO exporting of fuel to other countries.

This is nothing new as they have worked together for years now the only difference is that they have formalized it.

That's great! Obviously, there are smart, less-greedy and more environment conscious oil executives in Canada. That has absolutely nothing to do with the United States. Oil companies in this country cares nothing about the environment or the people of the United States, the only thing that matters.is their bottom line.

what a "novel" idea -- where has all the reach across the aisles we were promised been -- we only hear they won't work with us -- how can "work with us" work if that means "my way or the highway?

Working together, that's an idea. I'm sure I heard Obumma say that's he wants to do, but he fails at that also.
