The American Petroleum Institute did a radio tour January 5, offering a chance to interview their president and CEO, Jack Gerard. In it, I mentioned the oil train derailment spill and fire at Mosier on June 3, 2016 and asked if if the oil companies had any responsibility. You can hear his answer and the rest of that interview by clicking on the grey podcast bar at the bottom of the page. The following paragraphs are provided by the company that booked the interview:
