Exxon Mobil (XOM) now says 12,500 barrels of oil and water have been recovered from a pipeline that ruptured Friday in Arkansas. Predictably, the spill has turned into political fodder for opponents of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Massachusetts Democrat Ed Markey says the Arkansas spill demonstrates "that transporting large amounts of this corrosive and polluting fuel is a bad deal for American taxpayers."
