President Obama is still making up his mind on whether or not he'll allow the Keystone pipeline - which would send oil from Canada to the U.S. - to be built. It's a big decision that could have a big impact on our economy but many people aren't up to speed on it or find the details a bit confusing.

Thankfully, Reason TV put together a short and sweet video explaining the top three reasons they think the pipeline should be built.

Reason's reasoning seems pretty sound. If we don't, somebody else is going to tap into that oil. And, why should we sacrifice thousands and thousands of new jobs for our ailing economy just because Van Jones and company throw a hissy fit over junk science and trumped up safety concerns? It just doesn't make sense.
