I can't fault Big Oil selling to whomever they choose for as much as they can get. As it stands world demand is changing. We are using less but the world is using more. But having more at the ready at least keeps us in supply when the world around us is being very aggressive in getting some for themselves.
We are not the product of our environment, we are the result of ourselves.
That is why we are paying higher prices now. There is plenty of oil, but not enough gasoline precisely for that reason.
Given this scenario, doesn't it make sense to try to reduce our country's dependency on oil?
