TX Rep Calls for Crude Export Ban Lift

Fuel Fix reports that “Rep. Joe Barton is now convinced: U.S. oil producers should be able to freely sell their crude overseas.”

“’I’m in favor of overturning the ban on crude oil exports,’ Barton said in a statement first reported by Reuters, following a visit this month to South Korea.”

“’The shale revolution has changed the energy landscape in our country,’ Barton said, adding: ‘It is time to change our laws to match this new reality.’”

“The remarks suggest the Republican’s views have evolved since February, when he was far more equivocal.”
