Pipeline Becoming Political Football

We haven’t heard much out of Washington regarding progress on a decision about the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Rayola Dougher  is the Senior Economist with the American Petroleum Institute this last hurdle is turning into a political football.

After last weekend’s deadly disaster involving a runaway train hauling oil that exploded in Canada, there may be another push to get the U-S to approve pipeline. Dougher says a no from Washington will also impact oil producers in the U-S.

The line would cross South Dakota and Nebraska as part of the route to take Canadian tar sands oil to the US Gulf Coast.
