Hello Robert,

     YES, lack of refining capacity if one of the Major reasons for
     high gasoling prices.. (of course also world demand,. but.. )

     Before "consolidation" there was an excess of refinery capacity.
     most refineries ran at around 80% to 85% capacity. .. that is
     not profitable ENOUGH for the major oils, so as the merged they
     closed refineries.. now most of them in the US are running at or
     near 100%... ... so when one of them has an accident, or closes
     for mantainance, prices SPIKE.. .. and we still haven't replaced
     the those lost due to KATRINA... .. 

Best regards,
 Bill                            mailto:pythias@pacifier.com
