nuclear tankers

The US military uses nuclear power for aircraft carriers and submarines, why shouldn't big commercial ships do the same?

Hyperion power has a small nuke power plant design that they think will prove to be of little interest to terrorists and environmentalists alike.

So, why not put one in a big commercial shipping vessel? It'd be a great way to hedge against fluctuating fuel prices. And they only have to be refueled every couple of decades.
