Under fire from Republicans over high gas prices, President Barack Obama on Monday cheered news that the Canadian company hoping to build the Keystone XL Pipeline to carry oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico would press ahead with a US-only segment of that controversial project.
"The president welcomes today's news," spokesman Jay Carney said. "We support the company's interest in proceeding with this project."
