The American Petroleum Institute again urged President Barack Obama to clear TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline, following the company's submission of a proposed new route for the project. "The stars are aligning for America's energy future, and President Obama should make the right choice now and approve the entire Keystone XL pipeline," said Jack Gerard, API's president and CEO. "The president's concerns about the sensitive Sandhills area of Nebraska have been addressed. There are no more excuses. Mr. President, let's get this energy- and job-creating project started now."
