The latest edition of TR News explore the effects of the changing world energy market on the transportation industry, with deliveries of coal declining, natural gas use on the increase, and oil shipments from North American locations rising to challenge overseas sources. Authors examine the changing energy market by energy source, the transportation of North American crude oil, the effects on the U.S. Gulf ports and on barges and inland waterways, natural gas pipelines in New England, the effects of increased truck traffic on Pennsylvania roads, the shipment of crude oil by rail—including the crash in Lac Megantic, Canada— and more.
