Yesterday, President Obama kicked off a two-day tour to highlight his administration’s energy strategy. His stops include Nevada, New Mexico, and Ohio, as well as a small city in Oklahoma called Cushing.

If you aren’t from Oklahoma, you might not know about Cushing, or why it factors into the president’s energy plans. 

Ben Allen, a reporter from affiliate station KOSU in Oklahoma City, is here to explain. Carol O’Dell is a Takeaway listener in Oklahoma City who until recently owned a ranch just outside Cushing.
