    Glad we pump that stuff right out of the ground here. Just too bad we're too stupid to refine it as well.

    Isn't there a 15 year old computer wizard/geek that can do a work around on the pipelines systems or maybe design a firewall or some security programs for these outfits?

    Looks like anything close to the water might be ok.

    • Including potentially issuing a targeted waiver of the Jones Act
    • The Jones Act regulates maritime commerce in the U.S. and generally requires shipping between U.S. ports to be carried out by U.S. ships.

    That would not be good in a collision or rear end hit..
    I probably have around 12 gallons in 2 five gallon cans and a couple smaller ones in the garage. Swap out the fuel every fall. More to have handy than anything else.

    There is, they just decided it's more profitable to defeat security systems and shutdown pipelines.

    Riviera Beach, FL where I used to work. The city had their computer systems hacked. They paid over half a million dollars to the hackers to regain control.
