O * I * L !!
A small bit of the Oil and Coal refinery in Linden, NJ --shot during a drive-by. It goes on for acres and acres and acres on both sides of the highway! This is the reason that many folks think of NJ as being ugly and smelly. Although it's what you see from the NJ Turnpike in this one locale, the overwhelming majority of New Jersey is plum gorgeous -- Perfect in Spring, Summer, Autumn. Winter can be on the cold side, but New Jersey is rarely a target for natural disasters. Almost never touched by catastrophic weather conditions, or out-of-control fire. Too bad about the out-of-control political corruption though. But in NJ, the cost of gasoline is among the lowest of all the States!
As for the ugly, smelly refineries, they are part and parcel of America's best hope for energy independence. We NEED them!
------P.S. I am a Pennsylvanian!
