American oil is being shipped to Canada--say what?
COMMENT: This blog has long supported socially and environmentally responsible development of America's awesome but foolishly neglected domestic oil and gas resources, along with much needed alternative energy and fuels. We were among the first to report the Bakken story.
Little did we know that much of the precious, North Dakota crude would end up going to Canada for refining and export back to the United States because of an abysmal lack of U.S. refinery capacity, among other reasons. That doesn't seem right, notwithstanding that Canada is a wonderful neighbor and important ally in an increasingly dangerous and hostile world.
With all due respect to our Canadian friends, nothing says Third World nation … what America appears to have become … louder and clearer than the above-described oil-and-propane trade. In energy and so many other fields, the country is no longer king of the hill.
