Letter: Pipeline over rail means loss of jobs

Pipelines cost jobs. The Keystone XL pipeline will put thousands of truck drivers and railroad employees out of work in North Dakota.

The recent approval of the pipeline between Killdeer and Dickinson will take more than 800 trucks off the road every day. That’s a lot of income that will no longer be taxed or used to pay for housing and groceries.

The Keystone XL will only benefit the oil companies and the savings will not be reflected in the price of gas at the pump.

North Dakota’s red hot economy is based on jobs being available, take them away and the decline will begin.

Danny Bishop,

Hettinger
