“I totally understand the fear that people might not be able to get to somewhere in an emergency,” Ms Granholm told CNN.
Some consumers may wonder why the 62-year-old energy secretary and former governor of Michigan has just discovered the value of fossil fuels in supporting human life and development. Fox News’ Houston Keene reports:

At a press conference on Tuesday, Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Jennifer Granholm was asked by a reporter about the “feasibility of using railcars” to transport fuel across the country as the country faces a gas shortage due to a Russian cyberattack.
Granholm also said the Colonial Pipeline, which runs from Texas to New York and is similar to the recently canceled Keystone XL Pipeline, is the primary means of pumping oil into communities.
