More Steel News

More steel news! Apparently, the steel pipes made for the BP's Prudhoe Bay pipeline will be made in Youngstown. V&M Steel, formerly North Star and that big ol plant next to the 711 connector, will manufacture the pipe, ship it to Houston for finishing and then it will be sent to Alaska. This comes following BP announcing that 3% of this country's oil supply is tied up behind some sludge that apparently can't be beaten by Drano Max. It is great news for the Youngstown steel industry. Bad news for this country. Our reliance on oil products is pretty sad. It's all wind power, baby. A few more hurricane's like Katrina and we are living pretty for the next 10 years!
