KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE. Producing more oil do not affect the price of oil, gasoline as supporters of the pipeline claim. There is no shortage of oil anywhere in the worldly. If we produced more oil and the price of oil went down, producers would stop producing more oil because they dont profit when oil goes down to $50 a barrel instead of $100 a barrel. Or gasoline goes down to $1 a gallon. It simple does not profit the oil producers to lower the price of oil. The Keystone XL Pipeline would bring in more oil but would not lower the price of gasoline. We could produce more oil if we needed more oil to lower the price of oil and gasoline. If you lowered the price of lettuce, the grower would grow, produce and sell more lettuce but will not make more money. Would not be profitable and they would stop producing more lettuce and the price would go up and they would make more money. Put it to your 5th grader.
