How odd.

If there was a BAN on crude oil exports, why would the World Factbook show USA as the #48 exporter of crude oil??

U.S.A. Crude oil - exports:
41,640 bbl/day (2010 est.)

Somebody is fibbing ....

Sure, the oil barons want to get the highest price possible for their oil and continue to screw the American people.

All oil reserves should be nationalized and not a drop of crude oil OR refined products should be allowed to be sold outside the US.

We're going to need every drop we can get our hands on in the near future.
