Obama has to stop this or he will have a hard time getting gas to reach his $ 8 dollar a gallon target like in France.

Obummer's crew will put the application in the circular file. This will never get off the gound so long as Obummer is in office. The unions really have to love this guy to put up with this crap.

Environmental groups have vehemently opposed Keystone over the risk posed by spills from the pipeline and on the basis that crude from Canada's oil sands is dirtier than other types of crude oil.

I wonder how many of these environmentalists drive cars?

I just hope Obama keeps denying the Keystone XL's permits, as it will only bring in temporary jobs,and the US most likely won't get the benefit of oil, only the ability to purchase it from Foreign Countries at exaggerated prices. It will do great harm to the environment, due to the location in Nebraska. It crosses the Ogalala Aquifer, Wetlands, Sandhills, and Irrigated farm & ranch lands, as well as it is known to be the Dirtiest kind of oil. It has to have many chemicals to even be able to send it thru the line, and those chemicals are poisinous to people, animals, and if it gets into the water system, such as the Aquifer, springs, dams, irrigation systems, and wells...not to mention the cancer causing agents! Better think about it in a broad range and over a long time span...Leaks and ruptures do occur, and it is one of the hardest spills to clean up...it takes years before the land will come back, and will the water ever be safe?
