Most Alaskan oil is sold to the Northwest Pacific Rim

Look at a map and you'll see why. It makes far more economic sense to ship the oil to Japan, China, and Korea, than to the refineries in California. It's not only a matter of distance. The Alaskan oil is very sour, and very expensive to refine. To put it bluntly, it's better for our nation to sell it to them, contribute to the global supply of oil, and refine lighter, sweeter oil for sales here in the United States. Those nations have nowhere near the environmental requirements that we do.
