You make some very good points! I, like most others, have been spoiled by being able to buy very cheap fuel for all of my life. Compared to Europe and Canada we haven't had to pay high taxes for instance. Yes, the oil companies deserve to make a profit, I am sure that I own stock in many of them. Exports help balance our trade deficit, but these high fuel prices are slowing our recovery from the great recession. Sometimes I get a bit carried away. I know that banning exports won't happen in a democratic, capitalistic and a free country.
