I was reading an article recently that Chavez campaigned on diverting its oil exports AWAY from US and instead to Asian countries. I am not sure if that was to "fuel" anti-American sentiment or if this is a pure financial decision (or just political posturing).

I understand that Venezuela has more oil reserves than Saudi.

Here in the states under Obama's rule, gas prices have doubled.......the unmentioned severe tax on middle tax and poor.

Do you think this diversion away from US is posturing and if not, any impact expected on pricing here?
