Wyden Calls for Full Analysis of Keystone XL Impacts on U.S. Consumers


Location: Washington, DC

Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., called for a clear analysis of the impact of the Keystone XL pipeline on U.S. consumers, following the release of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement by the State Department today.

"The State Department needs to explain how it is in America's national and economic interests to facilitate Keystone XL's completion, especially if the pipeline is simply a conduit for oil and refined products to go elsewhere that makes the United States less energy secure and drives domestic gas prices higher."
