I agree with you. The distributions also went up during increasing interest rates in 04-06. The big thing is EPD is a totally different company since its oldest roots as a E&P company. It was the first to swirch to mostly organic projects and thses put a damper on distribution growth that has stay in place to today. One buys EPD for security and a slow steady increase in distributionsa that noe does not need to lose sleep about. The others including KMP have much more exciting situations including not covering the distribution for several quarters recently.
