The roughly four-mile oil pipeline that runs underneath eastern Santa Monica will operate for at least another 10 years. The city signed a decade-long agreement with the Crimson energy company that nets SaMo $103,085 annually, but passed on a 20-year extension that would have brought in $148,705 a year; one councilmember lamented that "the council really had very little choice." Santa Monica's isn't the only oil pipeline running right under our feet; check out the map here for more. [SMDP]
