Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star DrGoldin, succinctly summed up the Enterprise Products bull case for our community:

Just opened a real position on the reasoning that pipelines are going to be a huge beneficiary of this decade's energy boom. Everyone is going to make money, but I think the pipelines just might make the most of all. Somebody's gotta get that stuff to the refiners.
