From what I read, they were going to shut down the refinery just as the seasonal increase in use was to begin. This woyld have artificially created a
shortage and gas prices for them would have risen. As usual, other companies would have raised their prices too-profitering. The government
reallized this would have put a strain on our already strained ecomomy. I find it interesting that as oil prices have risen, and so gas prises have
too-to reflect this increaser in cost of production. My problem is all oil companies have been showing record profits durning this time-check it out,
it is a matter of public record. Makes you wonder about this, hmmm.
