    That sucks...

    Is it any better or worse than trains? Weren’t they spilling/wrecking/blowing up a couple years back? Is that still the case, or does this pipeline help eliminate that? Seriously asking.

    Am I dreaming, or was this not in the general forum? If so, I got in before the move. Barely...

    One tank car holds ~30,000 gallons of crude. What happens if a train derails and five tank cars rupture or get super heated intact? About 150,000 gallons of napalm bombs.

    Sad. If course the pipeline folks didn't think this would happen. And it will eventually happen again. For oil that we probably didn't need.

    We need that oil. We will need it for the foreseeable future too.

    Some of those refined products are going to Europe and China because they use more diesel then we do.
