I understand that “compliance” is “mandatory.” I just don’t understand why it is “safe” for some some industries to transport fuel in certain manners where other groups are not. Another example: if you are FEMA and use DOT rated drums it is considered “safe” to transport gasoline on flat bed trucks disaster or not – Joe Citizen is told that this is not “safe.”

When researching ways to store gasoline, the container manufacturer I spoke with offered “marine” drums to be in compliance with fuel storage regulations (if at sea). Again, it makes me wonder what is or is not truly “safe” with regard to fuel storage.
