    Refinery profit margins suffer when crude oil costs are high. It makes no sense to restrict throughput.


    Claire McCaskill is an ignorant whore.

    Price at the pump is high because we want to penalize all energy companies.

    The Hussein's energy policies are:
    Oil drilling - try to ban it
    Oil that does get drilled - tax it
    Oil refining - don't build new refineries
    Oil that does get refined into gasoline - tax it
    Oil companies that provide gas to the country - tax em

    And you libs wonder why gas costs so much. :lol:

    Obama will tap into our oil reserves again --before he would ever create a real private sector job in the oil industry in this country.

    I had to laugh--Obama was stating that there is more oil drilling going on in this country during his administration--but conveniently forgot to mention that all those permits to drill came out of the Bush admininstration--:razz:

    Incorrect.

    It's because the stupid fucks inside the DC beltway enjoy attacking the oil producing countries.

    Ok, are crude oil costs high? And the less they refine, the more profit margin they have, because they raise the price on the gasoline to compensate for PM losses while refining less product. Their shareholers are not going to take a hit in profits.
