So, are you saying that domestic producers should not be allowed to participate in the free market, and be required to offer their product here at reduced profits?
Sounds like a plan to redistrbute wealth to me....

The idea I was driving at was to use domestic crude solely for domestic consumption, combined with savings from refining and distribution locally, and decoupling the price from the world market for personal consumption, it would be a big boost for the domestic economy. Unless that is if you are taking the shareholder’s position, in which case your margins will be quickly outstripped by inflation caused by uncertainty of energy prices, along with reduced demand for the product you profit from. Five dollar a gallon fuel is a really strong incentive to find other means to move from point A to point B. It’s called called pricing yourself out of the market.
