During a press conference on Wednesday following the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, Biden Department Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said pipelines are the best way to deliver fuel to parts of the United States.
Note that Biden government official Granholm said this after President Joe Biden revoked a number of pipeline permits when he entered the White House in January, including Keystone XL.
The cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline, which carries around 45% of the fuel consumed on the east coast, has resulted in gas shortages in some areas.

Granholm: “Pipe is the best way to go”
A reporter asked Granholm, “How is it feasible to use rail cars to transport fuel to the affected areas? I know this is being watched. “
Granholm replied, “The DOT is looking into this and so we have to wait for your analysis to complete.”
Granholm continued: “These are not easy solutions as the right rail cars may or may not exist. The deepwater harbors may not be available for the Jones Act to respond. “

“So in this particular area of the country – that’s why we doubled down to make sure it was possible to move oil in gas,” she added.
Granholm continued: “But it is – the pipe is the best way. Because of this, hopefully this company, Colonial, will actually be able to get back up and running by the end of the week, as mentioned earlier. “
Absolutely scary. Never let a crisis end!
