"With an Eye on Trump, Refiners Tout Clean Fuel Rule as U.S. Win" by Stephen Cunningham


The article reads:

The refiners’ big concern is that energy dominance will take a backseat if the new rules lead to a spike in fuel prices headed into an election year. Trump’s options for lowering prices could include tapping the nation’s emergency crude stockpile or the Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve. Banning fuel exports is seen as a more remote possibility.

“Perhaps most likely of all would be the heating oil reserve -- that would address consumer concerns and realistically have an impact,” said Jim Lucier, managing director of Washington, D.C.-based Capital Alpha Partners LLC.
