The United States — and Pennsylvania in particular — is experiencing a revolution that’s fundamentally changed how and where we get the energy that powers our economy.
In response to America’s ongoing and positive energy progress, Buckeye has proposed partially reversing the flow of refined fuel products – namely gasoline and diesel fuel – along its Laurel Pipe Line.
This common sense, market-driven proposal will ensure Pennsylvania has expanded access to more lower-cost supplies of North American energy, which is a clear winner for consumers across the Commonwealth as well as our nation’s security. And experts agree.
We encourage you to learn more about this important project’s consumer and energy security benefits.
We can and must do better than the status quo, so please join other Pennsylvania consumers in making your voice heard today!
The legislators cited “the tremendous consumer benefits it would bring to our constituents and all Pennsylvanians.” They also said that “clear market forces” are making the flow reversal necessary “so that greater quantities of lower-cost domestic fuel from American refineries can safely reach more consumers, small businesses and manufacturers in the commonwealth.” … “These new supplies are the product of America’s energy revolution, which has unlocked opportunities to make our nation more secure and energy independent,” the legislators’ letter said. “It’s critical that we embrace this newfound domestic energy abundance and make certain that all Pennsylvanians continue to benefit from it.”

“This simple change in direction would result in a big win for consumers across the entire commonwealth as they benefit from more low-cost, secure, domestic fuel. … Those who would seek to block that fuel from getting to more Pennsylvanians are trying to hold on to the status quo, clinging to business models that generated profits in the past. Looking to the past, though, instead of the future, does not foster progress.”
– Former Allegheny Co. chief executive Jim Roddey
“Expanding consumer access to growing supplies of low-cost, domestically sourced fuel should be a top priority and shared goal among elected leaders and regulators aimed at making certain that Pennsylvanians continue to fully benefit from America’s ongoing energy revolution. … More reliable, secure and lower-cost fuel supplies are increasingly originating in the Midwest. Reversing a portion of the Laurel Pipe Line will deliver more of that fuel to consumers in western and central Pennsylvania.”
– Rep. Mark Mustio (Allegheny Co.)
This common sense “proposal has received the support of civic and elected leaders, small businesses, trade unions and free-market analysts,” as the Washington Observer-Reporter has reported.
Tell Harrisburg that you support expanded access to American energy.
