BP expansion could help stabilize Midwest fuel prices

June 28, 2007

The $3 billion project will allow the northwest Indiana location to process heavy Canadian crude oil, according to the Post-Tribune of Merrillville.

Industry experts in recent years have blamed spurts in gas prices partly on a lack of refinery capacity. The remarks about the BP expansion came during the British company's annual global energy meeting in Chicago.
