Transportation Efficiency v. Safety: The Debate on Oil Transportation Continues
The transportation of oil, gas, and other hydrocarbons certainly has sparked debate. All methods have its own sets of benefits and safety issues and concerns. Arkansans are certainly familiar with the Mayflower pipeline break and spill that occurred earlier this year. Alabama citizens now are watching the last of the flames from a oil rail line accident and spill. Efficiency, safety, and cost certainly play into the debate in some way.
