Refinery closure a failure of government

It is very difficult to believe that with all the oil people in our State Legislaature they could in any way allow a refinery to shut down. I thought this was an oil state, but there are a bunch who need to be replaced. They give billions of dollars to oil company in tax relief and can’t seem to help a refinery critical to the state of Alaska from shutting down.

Where is the aviation gas coming from now and the other products they manufacure? I don’t think Tesoro can take over. I helped start up the first chemical plant that Union Oil built in Brea, Calif., in 1955 and hated to see the plant shut down in Nikiski. It and the liquefaction plant next door, would not have had to shut down if only some of them had the guts to build a gas line 25 years ago.

One way to lose jobs, is just shut down everything.
