    This is a insane move to do this. There is no reason to reverse the permit process and this proves Obama with his tool the EPA is intending to wage war against the Petroleum sector. This move along with the drilling moritorium issued today is a telling sign that we in the Petroleum Industry are under attack by a rogue illegal Administration. This is a strictly political move.


    EPA gives final "no" to Texas refinery permits: Scientific American

    Leading U.S. independent refiner Valero Energy Corp faulted the decision. San Antonio-based Valero has six Texas refineries, the most owned by a single company. The plants employ 2,700 people.

    "When the flex permit program was rolled out in 1994, EPA and environmental groups applauded it, and EPA approval seemed implicit," said Valero spokesman Bill Day in a statement. "Now, 16 years later, EPA is reversing course, and our facilities are caught in the middle, creating significant uncertainty at a time when our economy can least afford it".

    Maybe Texas should secede and then they can do what they want. Please.

    Increasing Uncertainty among refiners encourages the industry to raise prices.

    Raising Prices will encourage inflation.

    Inflation is the opposite of Depression.

    By 2012, there will be a perfectly balanced economy.
