Obama in favor of constructing oil pipeline

Questions are still up in the air about which federal agencies are going to be involved in the Keystone oil pipeline development process.

President Barack Obama recently praised TransCanada for taking further steps towards construction.

The company recently applied for a new pipeline to be built, which would then transfer oil from Cushing, Oklahoma to Gulf Coast-based oil refineries at a faster pace.

While congressional Republicams have attacked Obama's stance on the project, he says that he is supportive of oil development, so long as it doesn't harm American people.

Senator Lisa Murkowski feels that the President is not doing enough.
