I agree that the U.S. consumers are the ones that will suffer with higher prices because of supply shortage due to exporting. Not what we want here.

It is a good thing. The more government regulation and BS added, the worse things get.

Of course price will rise. Our gov couldn't stand it if we have low prices. Keep us poor so we will bow to the state.
