Colonial Pipeline

As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

A most interesting bit of information from an online report that "somehow" Colonial Pipeline the major artery from Texas to New Jersey had some type of leak in it, to shut down the entire delivery system, which will drive up gas prices in several states.

A section of the Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Houston to New York, has been closed since Sept. 9 after a spill of roughly 250,000 gallons was discovered in rural Shelby County, Ala.
The major pipeline, one pipe of which has been severed, provides gasoline for an estimated 50 million people on the East Coast each day, according to company estimates. The cause of the leak has yet to be determined, according to the company's most recent statement.

In information I have gathered in listening to oil industry officials, the EPA has been dogged in making certain there are monitoring probes in all facets of these production and delivery systems. Colonial is not any different, so it begs the point in how this much fuel in a quarter of a million gallons was not detected.

This is the major system of fuel delivery and any company losing almost a million dollars worth of fuel is something which puzzles the mind.

The main lines are 40 inches (1,000 mm) and 36 inches (910 mm) in diameter, with one primarily devoted to gasoline and the other carrying distillate products such as jet fuel, Diesel fuel, and home heating oil. The pipeline connects directly to major airports along the system.

Then again, it is fascinating in the owners are Big Koch. If one had a memory alpha chip, they would remember that someone in the oil industry decided to deflate oil prices in 2012 to keep their Obama in office in the key northeastern states, in a refinery shut down.

We have been informed on Drudge that Big Oil is all in it for Hillary Clinton, because of course her wars in Eurasia will drive up fuel prices on Americans, while Mr. Trump is going to go to over production and deflate your fuel and energy prices.

Colonial Pipeline's owners include Koch Industries (a.k.a. Koch Capital Investments Company LLC, 28.09% stake ownership), South Korea's National Pension Service and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (a.k.a. Keats Pipeline Investors LP, 23.44% stake ownership), Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (16.55% stake ownership), Royal Dutch Shell (a.k.a. Shell Pipeline Company LP, 16.12% stake ownership), and Industry Funds Management (a.k.a. IFM (US) Colonial Pipeline 2 LLC, 15.80% stake ownership).

This appears to be a direct act in order to motivate poor voters in key states which are democrats to get them out to vote. The votes would be tallied for Mrs. Clinton.

Do not lose site of the constant chant now of a "close election" to condition everyone to expect it, when it is clear that Mr. Trump is trouncing Mrs. Clinton by a growing margin every day.

Prices have yet to move much. They're only up a penny or two in the last week in states such as Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, according to AAA.
But gas prices could spike by as much as 15 cents per gallon or more in those three states, as well as North Carolina and Virginia,

Once again, it appears that someone is flipping the key states of North Carolina and Virginia for sick old Rodham.

Once again, another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
