PBS News Weekend

Season 1, Episode 72 of 99

On Sunday, we take you to North Dakota, where an oil boom has transformed the state's economy. Nearly a million barrels of crude come out of the ground each day in the state, and instead of traveling by pipeline, most North Dakota oil goes by rail. But as the industry is projected to grow, a series of catastrophic - and at times deadly - accidents has brought new scrutiny to the practice of hauling oil by rail. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
