Pipelines Can Help Keep Travel Prices Down
Every summer, American families take to the roads and skies to travel. Summer vacation, a visit to family or a business trip, all require fuel delivered by pipeline for our cars, trucks and planes. Many factors go into the retail price of gasoline or jet fuel, but America’s pipelines are providing the new supplies that can keep prices down.
Air Travel Depends On Pipelines
You may not think of a connection between airplanes in the sky and pipelines underground, but planes can’t fly without the fuel pipelines deliver. Raw crude oil is delivered by pipeline to refiners. Refined jet fuel is delivered by pipeline to airports. Many airports even have local pipelines delivering fuel to each airport gate area. Pipelines are the least expensive way to deliver that fuel and can help airlines keep their costs down to the benefit of air travelers.
