WASHINGTON — Institute for Energy Research President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement on President Obama’s decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline:

“President Obama’s decision on Keystone XL is not a surprise. As we’ve said all along, the president never had any intention of approving the pipeline. Let’s be clear, the president isn’t only rejecting a pipeline. He’s rejecting the will of the American people, he’s rejecting abundant and affordable energy, and he’s rejecting trade with one of our closest allies. This president is as out of touch with the American people as much as he’s in lockstep with national environmental pressure groups.”
