Hey, I can look right out my window (here in Billings) and see the Conoco 
refinery, even on a not so clear day. We also have two other refineries 
here (Exxon and Cenex). Thats why we have some of the most expensive gas in 
the area. Drive 100 miles from here and buy the same locally refined gas 
for 10-15 cents cheaper.

And you probably thought all we had here in Montana were dental floss 
bushes  (<= timely Zappa reference).
