    In the news a few days ago, it was stated that the US is exporting more crude oil than we import for our use.

    What is wrong with that picture? Seems like we are quite self sufficient with our own resources - stop exporting crude just for the sake of the almighty dollar.

    We already have the resources ... it was stated in the news last week that we (USA) is exporting more crude oil than we are importing.

    D'oh ... isn't this is a no brainer? Why export the stuff and then buy it at an inflated price from somewhere else? This is pure stupid, imho.

    The oil companies are already making record profits and paying their CEO's millions of dollars for what - sitting on their duffs in meetings deciding how to rip of their fellow Americans even more?
