Fuel shortage because we've been selling so much gas to Mexico. People forget just because we drill oil here in the US doesn't mean it stays here. Oil companies sell to highest bidder. Period.

?? We are net exporter. You are net importer. Fact.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24995566

You fact is fiction.

The USA exports aproximately 100 million more barrels per year than we consume. We import 700 million barrels and export about 800 million.

Anyone who talks about our dependence on foreign oil is a tool.

Okay, I concede. You just made it in 2011. Congrats! I guess. Does Obama get credit?

But wait a minute..

As I understand it, the large amount of export is not crude oil, but rather the products of the refineries, i.e., gasoline, fuel oil (especially), diesel fuel, etc.

IOW you are a net importer of crude oil, but refine it and just in 2011 have exported more petroleum products than you consumed.

You almost had me fooled there...
