A $2 billion boost from Mariner East 2

Want to know why business and labor groups are pushing so hard for Sunoco Logistics' Mariner East 2 pipeline?

I can give you 2-3 billion of them.

That's the economic impact on the region that the pipeline will have, so says a new study done by an outfit called the Team Pennsylvania Foundation.

You can get all the details here.

Naturally, Sunoco is only too happy to share these statistics.

Residents who continue to oppose the plan are not nearly as enthused.

In fact, they might be more likely to mention another little nugget involving Sunoco Logistics and their pipeline business.

They are being sued by the feds over a pipeline rupture and spill in northeast Ohio that forced the evacuation of 70 residents.

Don't expect this dispute to go away anytime soon.
