More oil problems: Spill shuts down trans-Alaska pipeline

Up to several thousand barrels of crude oil spilled Tuesday during a scheduled pipeline shutdown at a pump station near Fort Greely, about 100 miles south of Fairbanks. A spill of that size — totaling more than 100,000 gallons — would be one of the largest ever for the 33-year-old pipeline.
