    You apparently missed my reference to refineries. The long term job producer is in the increased demand for refinery and transport services on the Gulf Coast.

    It's not just at the refineries, but in the petroleum sector generally as well.

    There are thousands of jobs building and maintaining pipelines.

    People have made careers out of pipeline construction.

    Even your own source called the study that cited it will create refinery jobs called it "unreliable"...

    By your logic road construction jobs are useless. BTW, what was Obama's sales pitch? Was it all those construction jobs that was going to save us from financial ruin.

    Precise numbers cannot be forecast but the prospect of growth is undeniable.

    The jobs will last a hell of a lot more then 30 months and to someone who has not worked in 5 years they will look pretyy good.
