We Love OIL

Everyday the United States sends over ONE BILLION dollars to other counties for Oil , Gasoline or Heatingoil. It is the single biggest drain on our economy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yr7qalUUmsk   Every year the US gov gives the oil industry over 60 billion dollars, from tax credits and above normal tax deductions to direct grants to different parts of the oil industry. There are over 721 paid lobbyists firms in Washington D.C. registered for the oil industry.

Re: We Love OIL

Need to include the amount of benefit we get from the exportation of Diesel and unleaded gas.   Much of the imported oil is refined and exported.

Re: We Love OIL

It's all in there. US does export a small amount of Diesel and some gasoline out of the gulf. But imports huge amounts into the east and west coasts. The US has shutdown a lot of refinery capacity in the US in the last two years, especially in the northeast. This is the time of year for our cheapest gas. RBOB tacked on 40 cent in the last 4 weeks. Its bend over time for the consumer. Where's the superlube when you need it.
