Exporting energy, whether electricity, crude oil or natural gas, to the US is one of our biggest industries[/b]. And while it is of enormous benefit to Canadians generally (because natural resources are generally owned by the Crown) and specifically for those employed in the business, it is primarily there because for a number of reasons, Americans cannot or will not produce their own energy. Regards ... Doug

That is a fascinating  and most-revealing observation coming from outside the US--one with which I heartily agree.  It sure says a lot about us American (USA) citizens and our own foolishness.   I don't know about how the development of ANWR would affect the price of gas at the pump, if at all. What I do know is it makes absolutely no sense not to produce it domestically to the extent that we can as opposed to purchasing crude oil elsewhere. This is especially the case when the opposing arguments are based on junk science.
