How shutting down a key pipeline could worsen Biden’s fuel crisis

As if shutting down the XL pipeline on his first day in office wasn’t bad enough, now the Biden administration wants to shut down a pipeline that is essential to the residents of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The pipeline provides the majority of Michigan’s propane. Line 5 also supplies 65% of the Upper Peninsula’s propane demand and 55% of Michigan’s propane demand overall, according to Enbridge .

The company says the pipeline transports up to 540,000 barrels a day of crude oil and natural gas liquid.
