Little Tracking of Crude Oil Rail Transit in Texas

Fuel Fix reports that “nationwide, rail transit of crude oil faces intense scrutiny. As traffic surged, a series of accidents, including a spectacular derailment that killed dozens of people last summer in Canada, has led to outcry from fire marshals and assurances from rail industry officials. Federal officials have issued a safety warning and emergency orders.”

But in Texas, home of the country’s most prolific production and most expansive refining capacity, crude oil rides the rails with little oversight…”

“To fulfill the minimum requirements of a federal emergency order, state public safety officials agreed to receive some information about potentially volatile oil arriving from the Bakken in North Dakota.”

I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
