Leaking Pipe Gets Fixed, Hopes Grows That Gas Prices Shrink

KANSAS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Oil is flowing again through the Trans-Canada "Keystone Pipeline" in the Midwest.

The pipeline was re-started with the U.S. government's approval Sunday, which came one week after the pipeline was shut down due to a small oil leak in Kansas.

That was the second leak in a month to stop the pipeline, which ships nearly 600,000 barrels of oil a day from Canada to Oklahoma.

The latest spill caused a big spike in gas prices in Fort Wayne last week.

Oil prices dropped a bit during electronic trading overnight.
