Propane Shortage Is A Side Effect Of Obstructing Energy Infrastructure Like Keystone Pipeline | Say Anything: "The Keystone XL pipeline alone could take 100,000 barrels of oil per day out of the North Dakota oil fields, a little more than 10% of current production. That’s a lot of trucks off the highways, and rail cars off the tracks. The Keystone pipeline, along with other infrastructure projects like the Sandpiper line (which is facing political opposition in Minnesota) could take pressure off of rails and roads which, in turn, would help alleviate the region’s propane shortage and passenger rail service delays.
But it’s not happening. Because President Obama would rather cater to a small but vocal minority of environmental activists."
