    You must be kidding. With Obama as president there is zero chance this will happen. Jobs, economics, science are all irrelevant. The greens will go ballistic and the greens are a key democratic interest group.

    Creating “one million jobs” temporarily exporting crude is not neccesarily “good for America”. It can only be proven good if all internal artificial government restraints and subsidies on the market are removed. We may not export a drop of oil under free market conditions, which would prove it is NOT good for america to export.

    Export of value-added finished petroleum fuels like gasoline, kerosene and diesel would be even better.

    But that would require new refineries, and we know that can’t happen in Obama’s America.

    I agree docscience. I would think that chemicals, petroleum products is a much better use of this commodity. I continue to be against exporting LNG at all as that is an obvious competitive advantage to the chemical industry.
