http://wnct.com/2017/07/20/gov-roy-coop ... n-c-coast/ From The U.S. ENERGY INFORMATION ADMINISTRATION : "North Carolina does not have any petroleum refineries or crude oil pipelines, but there are two petroleum product pipelines that pass through the state, both of which originate on the Gulf Coast. A third pipeline supplies propane from refineries in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi...." This type of mentality is ridiculous to me. Pumping it in through a pipeline from the Gulf Coast is fine but reject even looking for it, much less producing any off their coast. Maybe the valve should be closed off. To Florida as well.
