Gasoline Industry in the Valley is Broken

Governor Napolitano calls out Kinder Morgan in an Tuesday afternoon press conference.
Napolitano met with pipeline owner Kinder Morgan this afternoon and said she wasn't satisfied with the answers she received.

The governor questioned why a 50-year-old gas pipeline wasn't inspected more often, and wondered why plans put in place to move more fuel into the Valley while the pipeline was down.

Napolitano stressed that the gas shortage predicament the Phoenix area is experiencing is due to the shut down pipeline owned by a private company. She expressed angst over the fact that no redundancy was setup and no contingency plans were in place in case of potential problems.
