Listen: Offshore and inland, crude oil industry anxious over coming changes

The end of this week is the deadline for comments on the next five-year oil and natural gas leasing plan, which will serve as a guide for offshore drilling from 2017 through 2022. It's also comments time for the Department of Transportation's phasing out of the DOT-111 tank car, the current railroad car of choice for moving Bakken crude.
