Canadian National RailwayWhile ONEOK is taking care of natural gas, Canadian National Railway (NYSE:CNI) is taking care of the oil. Crude by rail shipments continue to surge as oil output has expanded more quickly than pipeline capacity.

Crude shipments are now the fastest-growing product for several big railroads and Canadian National saw its crude-by-rail revenue jump 300% during the first quarter. CNI has begun expanding through new terminals to deliver Bakken crude to refineries in Western Canada and the Gulf of Mexico.
