Because they're the largest contributors to republican campaigns.
Who owns the oil anyway?
Would Romney have abolished the use of Drones?
Who owns the oil is an interesting question particularly in an era where directional/horizontal drilling, fracking etc etc is commonplace.
How the government has and continues to issue mineral rights, oil leases and drilling permits is also interesting__amusing actually. T. Boone Pickens father worked for the US government and damned if he wasn't one of the guys that issued oil leases.
Nepotism and cronyism was the rule back in "the good old days."
