Excessive speculation in the oil futures market isn't "spin". A group of senators Wednesday introduced a bill to make federal regulators invoke emergency powers to rein in speculators responsible for rapidly-rising gasoline prices. The legislation would set a 14-day deadline for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to implement rules to stop excessive speculation by Wall Street traders in oil futures markets.

Keystone XL is an export pipeline. According to presentations to investors, Gulf Coast refiners plan to refine the cheap Canadian crude supplied by the pipeline into diesel and other products for export to Europe and Latin America. Proceeds from these exports are earned tax-free. Much of the fuel refined from the pipeline’s heavy crude oil will never reach U.S. drivers’ tanks.

Safety: A rupture in the Keystone XL pipeline could cause a BP style oil spill in America’s heartland, over the source of fresh drinking water for 2 million people. NASA’s top climate scientist says that fully developing the tar sands in Canada would mean “essentially game over” for the climate.

The U.S. Pipeline Safety Administration has not yet conducted an in depth analysis of the safety of diluted bitumen (raw tar sands) pipeline, despite unique safety concerns posed by its more corrosive properties.

TransCanada predicted that the Keystone I pipeline would see one spill in 7 years. In fact, there have been 12 spills in 1 year. The company was ordered to dig up 10 sections of pipe after government-ordered tests indicated that defective steel may have been used. KeystoneXL will use steel from the same Indian manufacturer.

Keystone XL will cross through America’s agricultural heartland, the Missouri and Niobrara Rivers, the Ogallala aquifer, sage grouse habitat, walleye fisheries and more.

The agency was not adequately accounting for threats to wildlife, increased pollution in distressed communities where the crude may be refined, or increases in carbon emissions that would exacerbate climate change, and a variety of other issues.

I've been working in Abu Dhabi since 2010 and have enjoyed the lower gas prices here. Moving back to New Mexico next month - getting ready for the Vintage Rally there... and the ABQ Balloon Fiesta Rally! However, not looking forward to the higher gas costs in NM - here in the UAE, current price for 95 octane is $2.12/Gal. Not bad - but our AS is back home!

$4.25 9/10 in San Francisco for regular unleaded on May 8th.

$3.25 9/10 in Tulsa!

What a difference a day and 1900 miles makes.

1,900 miles in one day would be 79 mph. That's faster than Neal Cassady drove in On the Road.

Gas in Grand Jct. was in the low $3.80's last week.

Aww shucks Gene. We were not pulling any aluminum, otherwise we'd post diesel prices for our old F350 7.3L. We flew to Tulsa, but we have been known to hit 79 mph.
