Letter to the Editor: The Keystone pipeline can lower prices


Progress is not where you have been but where you are going. The problems we need to solve are simple to state. We need a lot of action for each.

Fuel is a problem. We need Keystone refinement in working order now. We need natural gas compression for truck fuel. It is easy to say. We need action in the gas fields of Arkansas and Texas. Gas prices for our people need to be stable regardless of the source. We are charged too much at the pump. The Keystone pipeline can lower prices. We love lower gas prices. Movement in refinement is necessary. Put all tractor trailers on compressed natural gas. It will be 40 percent cheaper than diesel fuel. Lower truck delivery costs mean lower food prices.

Politicians appear to be weak. They can't handle our problems. Maneuvering is difficult for them. There is a way to handle all enumerated problems. Determination is low. The problems are not mysterious. Preparation can develop if aims are high and plans are simply stated. We need problem management rather than weak action.

James D. Tankersley Jr., Maurertown
