City Of Cushing Plays Important Role In Price Of Oil

Posted: Updated:
CUSHING, Oklahoma -

Of course, you need oil to make gasoline, and Oklahoma plays a critical role in the pricing of that oil. During this Friday's Road Trip Oklahoma, we sent Robin Marsh to Cushing to find out why.

Forty-million barrels of oil are stored in Cushing. It's also home to 13 oil storage and distribution companies.

Last month, President Obama said he'd direct federal agencies to fast-track a segment of the keystone pipeline from Cushing down to refineries on the Texas Gulf coast, increasing the capacity to deliver oil to those refineries.
