Home Heating Fuel Delivered by Pipelines

Millions of homes in colder climates, especially in Northeastern states, depend upon home heating oil and fuels to stay warm during the winter. Those products are refined from crude oil along with gasoline and diesel. Pipelines are necessary to deliver the high volumes of heating fuel we need to heat all those homes. Pipelines deliver crude oil to refineries. Pipelines then transport refined home heating oil and ultra low sulfur diesel fuel to local distributors who make the final trip to each house in a truck. But without pipelines at the beginning of that supply chain, many homes would not be able to get the fuel they need to stay warm during winter.
