Wrong. We shouldn't allow Big Oil to sell US gas or oil to foreign markets. This will NOT help our own consumption and energy costs, only fill Big Oil's pockets.

Reading these articles makes me realize how primitive we are. We might have technology,
But for some reason, we should be a lot further then we are today.
