Obama claims credit on Keystone, due or not
Gasoline prices rose again Monday, which should have put more pressure on President Barack Obama. But instead he got some good news, ironically out of the Keystone XL pipeline saga.
The developer, TransCanada, said it would do what Obama suggested in January: move ahead now to build the section from Oklahoma to the Texas Gulf Coast that does not need State Department approval. Obama immediately pounced, calling it a welcome development -- and likely will use the project as another example of his support for domestic oil development.
