The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which energy editor/analyst Joel South and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Joel is talks about an immense source of oil being produced in Canada that sells at a substantial discount to the already price-leading West Texas Intermediate. It's called Western Canadian Select, and it has the potential to flood the United States with cheap oil -- but before that can happen, a number of issues need to be addressed. This video discusses some current problems and potential solutions WCS will face on its pursuit of becoming a major benchmark and talks about the many ways to profit from the vast oil reserves in Canada.

Like it or not, this year will affect our energy investments in one way or another. For example, the president will accept or reject the Keystone XL pipeline after November's election. For this reason, our analysts have hand-selected companies that are set to soar as a new four-year plan is implemented with the intention of reigniting the American growth engine.
