Yes you do supply lots of our oil needs, and We are darn glad to have you a close neighbor's. We just can't live with out your oil. Got to have it.
And here is the fly in the ointment. The US tax dollar goes to subsidize Ethanol which is Great.. it helps even the playing field with big oil. But that is my tax dollar also. So the big question is, We love your oil and use it, but why are we exporting 42% or so of OUR ethanol to Canada? You guys have your own energy mandate's with ethanol to meet for production. And it is growing every year. As older cars get sent to the crusher, new flex or elect cars replace them. Here in farming country electric just won't cut it. We love the Ethanol, and use it every time we can. Political policys need to be worked out between our Ag Czar and our energy Czar and the policy's of subsidizing exports with us tax bucks. Heck that is just a tip of the iceburg.......
And the only thing I can do for that issue is about 4 min's of voting booth magic on November 2nd. (Simple roll of the dice) If the US government truly wants to decrease there dependancy on foreign oil, you would think they would not export there subsidized Ethanol. Send us more oil so we can E85 it. We love it gotta have it. And till it changes, Its still happy hour here. We will send you more Alcohol! Happy Camping.
