Fredericks: Lift the crude oil export ban

August 22, 2015

What kind of world do we live in, where America's leaders try to give Iran better international trading terms than we provide our own petroleum producers?

We are poised to lift economic sanctions and allow an enemy whose leaders chant "Death for America" to enrich its economy by exporting oil - it's only valuable natural resource.

At the same time, we maintain a 40-year-old ban on exporting our own domestic crude oil, to the detriment of our oil industry and economy. This is backwards, and the irony would be laughable if it weren't so sad.
