Indispensable Lifeline

"Around the clock, every hour, every day of the year, millions of gallons of crude oil from over a half million wells move from the far-flung oil fields of America to the hundreds of refineries. There the crude oil is converted into useful and essential products. Finally, these products move out to service stations, homes, stores, factories and other places of sale and use....Crude oil and natural gas, its associate, have a way of being found in remote places of this country, and of the world, far from consuming centers, a fact which emphasizes the need for adequate and economical transportation." 

Ticonderoga Publishers, 1958
