But a company known for engineering excellence is still trying to solve the very human problem of how to organise itself.

GUERNSEY, WYOMING: A gallon of gasoline that allows a driver on the US East Coast to travel about 25 miles has already navigated thousands of miles from an oil field to one of the world’s largest fuel markets.

The report, by members of the University of Washington team studying the law’s impacts for the city of Seattle, was published Monday by a nonprofit think tank, the National Bureau of
