Phillips 66 Moving Cheap Oil to East Coast Refiner

Booming oil production extracted from numerous shale plays in the United States is outpacing pipeline expansion, leaving high-production companies, like those in the Bakken, struggling to find pipeline takeaway capacity. The lack of takeaway capacity is causing regional U.S. oil price discrepancies as a result. In this video, Motley Fool energy analyst Joel South tells us about a new deal from Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX  ) in which the company will move oil to the East Coast using rail carts, supplying its East Coast refiner in Trainer, Penn., with cheaper West Texas Intermediate benchmarked crude. 

While there are a lot of great plays to make in the energy sector right now, we here at the Motley Fool want this to be the year your portfolio takes off across the board. Make sure you start 2013 with a bang and get the inside scoop on what Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner will be buying this year.
