A great all American town also home to Zippo lighters.
Both are in my backyard — yet fuel here is no cheaper, even on the Native American reservations that sell it “tax free”.
United buys just a very small amount of local crude, 2-4 Tri axle's a day...maybe. Some day's ....none........
Kiantone Pipeline is a coated steel
transmission pipeline that extends
from Buffalo, New York to Warren,
Pennsylvania. Its sole purpose is to
deliver crude oil to United Refining
Company’s refinery, where it is
transformed into usable fuels such as
gasoline, diesel fuel, propane, butane,
asphalt, and a variety of other petroleum
products. The crude oil originates in
western Canada providing for a line of
products generated entirely in North
America. Kiantone Pipeline is owned by
United Refining Company and was built
Kiantone Pipeline also operates two other
pipelines in Warren, Pennsylvania. These
pipelines transfer diesel fuel, FCC charge
and light cycle oil (LCO) between United
Refining Company’s refinery and its
tank farm for storage. All of the pipelines
operated by Kiantone Pipeline adhere to
the same standards and policies.
Flying J also hauls out of URC.............
Funny John C. did not mention that his refinery has been shutdown for 2 month's for a turn around, thus tank level's are low......and crude price is up. His massive storage tank's in Buffalo,NY sat full for the last 2 months as crude prices rose.......but didn't need to buy cause the refinery was shutdown, but now is back online.......$$$
