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

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.

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.
