More oil than first stated in Yellowstone River pipeline leak
~Today the Department of Transportation said it took Exxon about twice as long as the company originally reported to plug a pipeline leak in Montana. That means much more oil than Exxon first stated has flowed into the swollen Yellowstone River. Locals complain that useful information is hard to come by.
And this afternoon, state officials walked out of Exxon's command center to establish an independent investigation. From the Marketplace Sustainability Desk, Eve Troeh reports.
