The U.S. refinery industry regularly faces the impact of an array of evolving financial and other influences both from home and abroad. The sliding scale of crude oil production and its cost, the path to cleaner energy sources, and the ever-changing demands for refined products are all influential factors. Additionally, changes in the structure of the industry, such as closures and expansions of refineries, also play a pivotal role. These elements build a complex landscape in gasoline, middle distillates, resid, and renewable fuels sectors and, while it may be difficult for industry insiders to predict the forthcoming turns in this refined product journey, it becomes exceedingly vital to stay updated with the most recent events.
