    That it ends at a refinery with no water access (tanker or barge traffic).  That was the distillate would more likely end up in the US and would lower our fuel prices.  I think a similar pipeline now goes to East Saint Louis.

    Now, that's not the master plan - the Canadians and US refiners want to get that stuff exported as to keep the price high here and abroad.

    It will be interesting to see what transpires - I don't think this is the gross environmental disaster that many here do. That said I could be wrong and it's probably better safe than sorry.
