There was a series of explosions and a fire at the Chevron refinery in Richmond at about 6:40 PM today. No word on casualities. Be prepaired for the usual customary gas and diesel price increase that no doubt will follow this disaster.

Yep. Modern refining process is a continous process beginning to end, that cannot be interupted anywhere in the process or the whole thing has to be shut down.
Besides the loss of refining capacity which is thin already in this state, the EPA, AQMD, and Cal OHSA will climb up their skirt with fines so big it would terrify the average person. And they will simply pass the unforseen cost right down the line.

Don't think for a minute this only effects the prices from Chevron. The other refineries will see the drop in refining capacity and the "supply and demand" will kick in and they will more than benefit from the drop in supply.

They don't just see it... the oil companies buy/trade gas and diesel from whatever refinery has it. I've seen Arco, Shell, Unocal, Valero, etc. tanker trucks at all the different refineries regardless of brand.

In SoCal it ALL goes to one distribution center regardless who refined it, and it goes from there into mostly common carrier trucks that deliever it to the stations. There are some "brand" trucks out there, but they ALL still get there gas from the same central distribution center. They simply dump the "additive" package into the tank before they fill it. Same goes with the ethanol. There is no "Chevron, Shell, Union 76." Its just gasoline and additive packages.

Damn right. The last west coast fire, a few back, had gas here at $4+ here, WA. Got down to $3.25, and in town today, closing in at $4 again.

This country is fucked, with stupid. ZERO new refineries, decades. "Keystone pipe line..."...not gonna happen. And on the EPA? ..need to be corralled up in a pen, like cattle, and shot. Assholes in suits and ties, .."saving the world"

Seems our "gov", (what do they care any price anything, its free to them anyway.."call my limo". I sick and tired what this old Nam Vet has seen, (yes, I remember the oil embargo, 74ish, NO gas). "We need a energy policy!"..(yeah right, still waiting, 38 YEARS now?)

Hate to say, but the idiots and assholes, on YOUR tax dime..(well, was a dime, now close to every dollar ya make)....are WAY out of hand, and if obozo gets re-elected...:))ThumbsDwn Were fucked.......
