Why the US exports more gas than we import....drilling not the answer.


Drill, Drill, Drill will not lower the price or gasoline.

We have too much gasoline

Speculators impact price but so does our lack of infastructure..

The US has a Gasoline Overage....Too Much Gas...So much we export our refined gasoline. We export more gas than we import. So why the high prices?

It's not the Middle East...

We have not and are not keeping up on our distribution infrastructure.

The U.S. has become a net exporter of gasoline for the first time in fifty years. Thanks to rising production at refineries and declining demand, the United States exported more gasoline than it imported in December. The unusual development reflects the segmented U.S. energy market — the East Coast needs to import gas while the Midwest produces a surplus.

Instead of exporting our gas and importing gas, why dont we just use our own. Someone is getting filthy rich off the price of gas and it isnt me.

Amazing article. Instead thinking of the American people, if we looked at our infastructure, we can add pipelines to the states. What would that mean? Possibly more jobs to build and less money for the oil commpanies? What are we thinking? Politics is out of control? So many questions and not so many answers. Amazing.

Anita pretty much said everything I wanted to say. Why aren't we taking advantage of this excess of gasoline? Why aren't we using this opportunity to create more jobs?

With the technology now a days do we really need to keep using this old school way of making cars???? Its really frustrating to keep hearing about oil prices going up and stuff.

Were in a recession and we need to start thinking of importing gasoline to ourselves a little bit more. To lower these prices, which isn't help us get out of this economy crash.

wow, makes me wonder how much I really don't know. If we have the ability to make money as a country and pay off debt, then why don't we? Individuals in our government have some really fat pockets. All the while our country is falling down the tubes. Government is supposed to protect its people. Sounds like its doing nothing but protecting itself while screwing its people.

I agree with Angela. Someone is getting filthy rich off of this and that man is probably American. Funny what a little research shows us.

America always has to do things the hard way and never the easy way. Creating the jobs and using our own oil would be too easy for our country. Instead of using all this oil though, if they would make hybrid and other cars that are not run on oil more affordable to people like me (who are of lower income and are willing to buy cars like these) maybe some people would be mor happy and that would probably create some more jobs too.....
