AAA offers Tipsy Tow service

Tipsy Tow service will be available this week for people who have too much to drink with their Thanksgiving turkey. “If you've been drinking, why take a chance and drive? We are offering a safe, free alternative,” AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai said. “We know alcohol is going to be consumed at holiday parties, whether at a friend or relative's house, or while out on the town. When the party's over, we just want to make sure the roads are as safe as possible for everybody.” Free rides are available in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton, Bartlesville, Enid, Muskogee, Shawnee and Tahlequah from 6 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Monday for those who call (800) 222-4357.

400-mile pipeline to be built

Magellan Midstream Partners LP and Occidental Petroleum Corp. will build a new 400-mile pipeline to move crude oil from west Texas' Permian Basin to refineries in the Houston area, the companies announced Monday. The BridgeTex pipeline will be capable of transporting up to 300,000 barrels of oil a day, with a total of 2.6 million barrels of storage at each end of the line. The line is expected to be in service by the middle of 2014.
