Grandma Millie gets jammed up the a****** again!
Does this sound familiar?
Valero Energy Corp. said output at its Memphis, Tenn., refinery would be reduced by 25,000 barrels per day as it makes some repairs anticipated to take nine days.
Dow Jones Newswires reported that two Louisiana refineries experienced brief power outages but that production was unaffected. The cause was believed to be a lightning strike. A similar incident occurred at a Texas refinery, but it was not immediately known if output was affected.
Last week, Valero shut down its St. Charles, La. refinery for 20 days for repairs. The company anticipates a total loss of 1.3 million barrels of gasoline production over the repair period.
Compare that to what Enron was doing:
In secret deals with power producers, traders deliberately drove up prices by ordering power plants shut down.
"If you took down the steamer, how long would it take to get it back up?" an Enron worker is heard saying.
"Oh, it's not something you want to just be turning on and off every hour. Let's put it that way," another says.
"Well, why don't you just go ahead and shut her down."
Don't worry. You know that under the honest leadership of George W. Bush, we can count on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to investigate the oil industry on behalf of the average American citizen!
Bwaa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!
