exxon-mobil_LogoPeople living in Mayflower, Arkansas have filed a lawsuit against Exxon Mobil.

This comes after a pipeline ruptured spewing thousands of barrels of oil into the neighborhood last month.

Until the spill, many residents didn’t even know the line that carries oil from Illinois to Texas, ran through their town.

Exxon has already promised to cover all cleanup costs.

The town is seeking more than $5million in damages.

    Sounds as serious as a Gulf spill but I never heard of it on TV or in print. Should hear about it when Canadian pipeline arguments creep into the news again.
