Oil tanks at the St. James Strategic Petroleum Reserve Terminal connected to Bayou Choctaw, one of four sites on the gulf of mexico , each located near a major center of petrochemical refining and processing, in this case Baton Rouge.
Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is an emergency fuel store of oil maintained by the United States Department of Energy. President Obama has considered tapping into the oil reserve as oil price rise since the uprising in Libya has led to a steep price increase in gas, hurting an already struggling economy.
