Is Keystone Pipeline Pressure Behind the Gas Price Push?
Gas prices continue to soar, even as oil prices plunge. There’s no increase in holiday travel, weather, or Middle East instability to explain it. There’s a good chance it is oil company pressure on Obama over the Keystone Pipeline.
COMMENTARY | As gas prices shoot up, motorists are starting to feel the pinch. Or maybe it's a punch. What is behind this price at the pump spike may not be due to the usual culprits: high travel, a storm, or Middle East instability. It may be an attempt to force President Barack Obama to cave on the other half of the Keystone Pipeline.
As gas prices continue to climb daily, now more than 30 straight days, you might expect oil prices to be doing the same. But they fell by $1.88 just yesterday, according to measures by Brent crude (the industry standard). Yet there are claims that despite this, the price you pay to fill your car will continue to climb.
Maybe there was a lot of holiday travel, which caused a short supply of fuel. Not so, according to AAA, which measured the Christmas driving season and found it to be little different from other holiday seasons.
There's no hurricane that would explain the chasing away of oil rigs from the Gulf of Mexico. Nor is there some BP Deepwater Horizon spill that would cause prices to go up like they are.
There's no new event in the Middle East that would justify the climbing prices. There's the usual Iranian saber rattling, but no different from what we've seen since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected Iran's President.
But there is one event that has recently exploded that might account for the surge in gas prices. Environmentalists are heavily lobbying President Obama to not approve the northern half of the Keystone Pipeline, which would cut across America, linking Canadian tar sands with the international market. They were encouraged by his remarks in his inaugural address, which coincided with the beginning of the price spike.
Massive protests and arrests of celebrities like Robert Kennedy Jr. and Daryl Hannah occurred over the weekend.
Even though there's no guarantee we would get the oil (world demand sets the price) or even cheaper gas, oil companies may be fighting back the only way they know how: putting the squeeze on motorists. It is a warning to Obama what might happen if he doesn't approve the northern half of the pipeline.
Obama already approved building the southern half of the pipeline, but halted the northern part over massive environmental protests over the location of that pipeline. After moving it to satisfy regional concerns about aquifers, Obama is likely to face the heat from American consumers to complete the job, thanks to the price surge.
