      subsurface storage of crude oil in salt caverns offered the best security for the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), low environmental risk, and also the least costly storage mechanism, as salt dome storage is considered about one-tenth the cost of surface storage of crude oil.   Trump says U.S. to buy oil to fill up the Strategic Petroleum Reserve By Myra P.
