ENERGY TRANSPORTATION IN APPALACHIA
Results of two recent studies which examined the transport modes for coal and coal-based energy commodities in the Appalachian Region of the U.S. are discussed. The first study focused on the line-haul portion of the trip, examined three modes--rail, water, and pipeline--and three energy resources--coal, oil (refined or crude), and natural gas. The second study was more limited. First it dealt only with roads and highways, and secondly it only considered the transport of coal within the eight producing states of the Region.
