Petroleum company Caltex is shutting down its Kurnell refinery in Sydney because it says it is no longer financially viable in the face of
competition from big Asian refineries.
Caltex says it will close Kurnell by the middle of 2014, after 57 years of operation, and instead use the facility to import fuel refined
So Caltex shuts down its oil refinery under the guise that its cheaper to import Asian oil, than it is to manufacture it, however it also says (Ten
News interview) that the transition is going to increase prices slightly for the consumer.
So, importing it will be cheaper, but we have to pay slightly more... sounds like the middle mans taking us for a ride.
Why isn't the PM demanding that we keep these 300 men employed and perhaps INVEST the assumed '' extra cost '' into research and development so WE can
refine it cheaper.
.... really, how hard is this sh1t people?
And considering the current world affairs, i think its a great idea to be keeping our domestic production abilities running.. what happens when Asia
goes to Cr@p?
!%_!(%&! you Gillard and Abbott you mindless whimps.. where's your backbone, you aint doing nothing for the Australian people, and your that wicked
your willing to stand infront of the camera and pretend to care with that stupid smirk!
feel better now
