    Feed the Bear

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009...oil-exports-eu

    Guess who now exports more oil than anyone else in the world? They already exported more natural gas than any other nation, now they've surpassed Saudi Arabia and the rest of the world as the leading oil exporting nation.

    I suppose we will just keep feeding the bear.

    For those in the United States, don't think this is solely a European problem. The U.S. now imports 5% of its oil from Russia. Of the 12 million barrels of oil the U.S. imports each day, the daily average has been growing and now surpasses 600,000 barrels per day from Russia.

    Wars have started over less. To the Europeans - good luck with this, you're going to need it, along with a renewed stance on European national sovereignty and security. Time to play "Stand or Fall," or "Red Skies"....?

    Thumbs down Exporting our stuff

    I'd wondered why gas $ was so high up here, being as we're nearer to the Alaskan pipeline.

    Informed by a local that it's because the US ships off a substantial amount of that oil to... Japan!

    There are some oil wells in Colorado that the powers-that-be keep closed off for whatever reasons they have.

    We ship alot of our NW lumber to Japan, too.

    Not anti-Japan, I'm just sayin' we've some resources, but they're being hoarded or sent elsewhere.
