    • You would be wrong on that decision. Little do you know about a strategic energy plan for the infrastructure of moving oil/gas/petroleum products vital to our nation. Security measures are three fold to insure the vital flow.
      In ground pipelines, Rail tank cars, Truck tank transport.....all three have designed capacity to secure the safety of oil & energy resources per PADD REGIONS in the USA. Imagine if a terrorist group were to blow up a major series of pipeline sections connecting the hub in Cushing Oklahoma? Plan two is railroad cars to delivery vital supplies to the refinery and trucks also. The capacity will increase for the security of the transportation infrastructure of energy can take that information to the bank as you buy stock in the sector of energy transport.

      • Your reply is hilarious.After 911 we saw a hobo with a huge suitcase walking through the rail yard.Called property protection and they spent the next 4 hours looking and could not find him.Two national guardmen on each gate.Terrorists could have drove in and eradicated an entire locomotive facility list of personnel. One section of rail notched properly could derail an entire train.2 terrorists with weapons could climb on board a chemical loaded train ,disable the safety devices and derail it in a population center.Most of the fuel storage farms are just sitting targets for attached incendiary devices or rockets.The huge LNG tank storage areas could equate out to a small nuclear device.The truckers would probably stay at home after numerous on the road attacks.And by the way the windows on the locomotives are bullet resistant.But not to large caliber armor piercing rounds.The USA is a sitting target for a well planned terrorist attacks and the people in charge know it.It is a sad security situation in this country and we will eventually pay for it.Wherever you got your security plan it is not worth the paper it is wrote on.Take that to the bank.

      • One day you may see truck tanker cars filled with crude on the back of CSX flat's all in the big picture plan. It takes several years to approve pipelines through the government regs, rail load sites can be built in a few months time to meet demand.
