Wisconsin doesn’t produce any oil, it doesn’t produce any natural gas. But it produces great sand – lots of it that plays a critical role in America’s energy renaissance. Wisconsin is the nation’s leading fracking sand producer, supplying 24 million tons of it, accounting for 44 percent of U.S. production, in 2014.

Reuters: The U.S. Congress could lift the 40-year old ban on domestic crude oil exports within a year as a drop in gasoline prices and the potential return of Iranian oil to global markets makes it an easier measure for politicians to support, Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts said on Thursday.

U.S. gasoline prices have dropped since last year along with global crude prices, thanks to strong crude output from the United States, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. On Thursday, the U.S. average for regular gasoline at the pump was nearly $2.74 a gallon, down from $3.65 a year ago, according to the AAA motorist club.

If that remains the case, it has the potential to allay politicians' fears that they could be blamed any rise in gasoline prices if the crude oil export ban was lifted.

That could also put pressure on global oil and U.S. gasoline prices.
