Rail offers the chance to send it to the best market while in transit. Both will be developed incrementally as the source keeps pumping, which is ok by me as it is a North American source for our addiction. Keep it local baby!
Go BNSF and screw the MM&A and World Fuel Services, culprits wh0 fried a nice Quebec town. Worst. Rail. Accident. Caused. by. Human. Error. Ever. One man train crew on highly profitable commodity transport - they thought they were saving money and reaping greater profits - bankruptcy, lawsuits, and 47 dead smoldering bodies proved them wrong. On the other hand the Kzoo river is still a mucky oily mess and the remaining phish are not happy. But how many oil tankers from the ME sank/ran aground?
35 - this country needs to use rail more to be more efficient-we used to have many more rail miles but that has changed due to roadway /trucking freeloaders.
