First study this map that shows pipeline leaks all over the US. Of course Texas is always the biggest and best so we can boast about having the highest volume pipeline leak ever, 4.5 million gallons, and the third highest volume leak, 2.9 million gallons.
Next watch this video about the leaking pipeline that exploded in Kenya killing dozens of people in the blaze.

Don’t worry, some in Congress bought into Teaparty propaganda, aand are working on making US pipeline laws weaker:
“The NTSB makes those recommendations without concerns for the economic cost,” the spokesman said. “That is something we have to take into consideration.”
I guess a pipeline’s bottom line is more important than safety, no matter how many are killed by pipeline accidents.
