Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

4. I am guessing that it isn't the actual refining that is the problem but the entire

infrastructure related to reshipment after refinement.

That would include using domestic pipelines and tankers taking refined petroleum gasoline to other ports by tanker.

If it was refined in ND how would it get to the mid west and the east coast? by truck ? by rail?

I am guessing that it is much much less expensive to transport the gas by tanker to NY from Texas by tanker than it is to have thousands of truck loads go by either surface or railroad.
