Interesting about the XL pipeline. This oil is going to be produced, and either pumped to Canada's west coast or east coast, if the XL isn't put into place. From where it will be sold to Europe and Asia. And of course, shipping it will cost more and cause more environmental damage due to emissions from ships.
Some will come to the US...via rail. Which do you think is more efficient and less environmentally damaging...moving the oil by pipeline or by rail. (BTW, Warren Buffett is delighted that it will move by rail....since he owns most of the railroads in the area.)
