We ask that you join with us today by signing our online petition and call on the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to reject Buckeye’s proposed reversal. It’s bad for consumers, bad for businesses, and just plain bad for Pennsylvania.
Take Action today – let your voices be heard
We are writing to express our opposition to Buckeye’s application to reverse part of the Laurel Pipeline. If approved, the Pittsburgh region, which is currently supplied by multiple pipelines from Ohio, will lose the only remaining pipeline for finished products coming from the Philadelphia region. Having multiple pipeline options is good for Pennsylvania and a reversal will make it substantially more difficult for a competitive environment to exist.
Additionally, reversing the Laurel Pipeline could put tens of thousands of Pennsylvania jobs at risk. We have to ask ourselves whether a reversal benefits Pennsylvania citizens, workers, and the Commonwealth, or does it instead benefit out-of-state refiners and a Texas-based pipeline company? I hope that you too will conclude that a reversal is not in the best interest of the Commonwealth.
Thank you for your consideration.
