If you have trouble with a tanker or a rig, you can always move things to a new one. Not the same with Pipelines, there are fail safes. It's just cutting corners. They put too much in on Pipelines, all the eggs in one basket.
This shit's so fake!
A week ago they started saying prices would be going up cuz of gas shortages this summer, then "Russian" hackers attack a pipe line and now Michigan it shutting down another...I mean dose anyone actually think hackers could disable a pipeline for days? Maybe they could do it for a day, more than likely though the oil company would reboot the infected computers with backed up drive images and the pipeline would be flowing again within hours, not days....This all another scam by the people in charge to F you in the A and take your money ;)
