Mills: Study: North America likely energy-independent by 2020

Times Record News -- North America will likely achieve energy independence by the end of the decade, according to a study by UBS.

Hope they factored in that most of that "boon" will probably go overseas for debt reduction.

E-Squirrel - "rjhenn complains:"

First off, that was a quote of what milespergallon posted. That's why it was labelled with his pseudonym and surrounded with quotes.

"Actually, on balance, we are not exporting "more" than we import. We import a LOT of things. If we truly exported more than we import, we would not be running a trade imbalance, requiring us to go into debt."

Secondly, he thought he was talking specifically about oil, not everything. In reality, he was only talking about refined product.
