I understand that Richard. I was responding to his thought that asphalt would not be shipped far, but wherever it is used, it has to be shipped from a refinery.

True, but Western Asphalt was in Santa Maria, CA and Ned models
somewhere in the wilderness east of the Mississippi, where there was
no chance that a California Despatch Line tank car assigned to
Western Asphalt would have turned up, even by accident.
