American Petroleum Institute analyst updates Keystone XL oil pipeline issue

If and when the Keystone XL oil pipeline will become a reality is still up in the air. Rayola Dougher is a senior economic analyst with the American Petroleum Institute says it is now a political issue. She says President Obama could give the ok at any time.

Dougher says the State Department technically could drag it their review as long as they like. They will look at the review from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, call for their own review or ask for another 180 day comment period.

Dougher says a recent survey shows that 75-percent of those polled approve of the project.
