Can the Railroads Save America's Oil?

Or are we risking too much when shipping crude oil by train?

March 18, 2014

Since the rise of domestic oil production, railroads have increasingly become a favored mode of transporting America's crude oil.

National Journal's Clare Foran explains how the fracking boom led to an increase in crude-oil transport via rail and why this matters to America's energy future.
