Why do so many people think that the Keystone pipeline project is all about bringing oil and jobs to the USA? In some small way that is true. The oil will travel through the heartland of the USA on its way to a refinery in Texas where it will be made into gasoline that will then depart our shores on a supertanker bound for China. China is the Canadian company's customer for this gasoline. There will be some jobs created; mainly to build the pipeline and when that is complete, the jobs are gone. The Canadians were prepared to build that pipeline to British Columbia if we hadn't caved in. Building a pipeline to the Gulf coast is cheaper than building one to the Pacific.
