Subject: pool report #2/Obama on Keystone pipeline
The president said he agreed with the State Department recommendation and has already spoken with Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau.
He said the pipeline has been used too often as a campaign cudgel, and would not make a meaningful longterm impact on the US economy.
Gas prices are down $1.27 in 3 years.
"We've gone ahead and created jobs and lowered gas prices," even as the debate over those very goals swirled, with the proposed pipeline at its center.
He spoke of the need to curb the use of fossil fuel to protect the planet.
Cameras clicked throughout. The president ignored shouted questions as he left.
