Just because the State Department has decided that the Keystone XL pipeline would not have a major environmental impact, that's not the last word. And despite ongoing opposition, it's clear that the Keystone is the best way to get the crude oil from Canada's oil sands to the U.S Gulf Coast.

Keystone XL pipeline supporters - who have been waiting years for this project to be completed - just received good news from the U.S. Department of State.
The Keystone pipeline is 1,179 miles long and would connect heavy crude oil from bitumen deposits in Canada to the southeastern refining network of the United States. While the southern portion has been built, the northern section requires approval given its cross-border passage.
Determining fair value is vital when deciding whether a stock is a good buy or not. In the case of energy stocks, there happens to be a yardstick investors can use to bring home market-beating trades time and time again.
We've seen how the U.S. shale oil and gas boom has created a lot of new investing opportunities in the energy sector. As U.S. production soars, however, so do the risks to the infrastructure required to get the oil and gas out of the ground and into people's homes and autos.
Texas has some of the biggest shale oil reserves in the country. And new discoveries in one of those, the Wolfcamp formation, has stunned many energy experts. This shale oil formation is now thought to be the second-largest in the world.
Even now, after several years of hype, investing in natural gas remains one of the best ways to cash in on the biggest U.S. economic boom in decades.
And 2014 figures to be the year when all the catalysts driving the U.S. natural gas industry come together.
Already U.S. natural gas production is one of the most stable and intelligent investments available. And given that midstream providers typically offer higher-than-average yields as well as heavy capital appreciation potential, investing in natural gas stocks offers a rare double-upside scenario.
The global oil market in 2013 was dominated by geopolitical disruptions, a huge boom in U.S. domestic production, and double-digit gains for energy investors. As a group, energy stocks rose 18%. And a handful of the quality shares, including several recommended by Dr. Kent Moors, doubled.
Despite the big gains on Wall Street after the Fed announced it would start to taper its stimulus programs in January, the move takes away a big prop to stock prices. Well, most stock prices. Because as the era of cheap money goes away, something very interesting is going to happen with oil...
The first real Washington budget deal in years won't make that much of a difference to most Americans, but for investors it could be a trove of profits. That's because buried in the details of this deal is an extraordinary investment opportunity almost no one else has noticed.
It's time to look at oil stocks to buy as the United States gets ready to surpass the world's biggest oil producers.
Earlier this month, the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that the United States will jump past both Russia and Saudi Arabia as the world's top oil producer by 2015.
When it comes to natural gas, Russia has had it too good for too long. For years Russian gas companies have forced customers to overpay for product, or in some cases pay for product they didn't even use. But the rapid rise of shale gas production in North America has changed everything. Dr. Kent Moors explains what all this means -
Stock Market News Today, Nov. 27: U.S. stock futures today are headed for yet another record-breaking session as stocks are up across the board ahead of tomorrow's holiday.
If this is Thursday, it must be...Brazil.
I returned home late last night from Baltimore where we were putting the final touches on one of the best energy investments yet, a huge new precedent-setting play we'll be releasing very shortly.
But my wife Marina and I are now into a very hectic travel schedule.
Oil prices slipped below $93 a barrel Tuesday, continuing a downward trend that started early last month.
Last week, oil prices fell 0.76%, logging a sixth weekly decline, the longest string of losses since 1998. Volume also slid, with futures roughly 41% below the 100-day average.
Hardly anybody is talking about this. The world's two oil benchmarks are moving in opposite directions. The price of crude in New York is going south, while the price in London is heading north. It's a rare disconnect that can lead directly to profits -
