American success

Liquid fuels such as diesel, jet fuel, and gasoline form the backbone of the global economy. From agricultural equipment to cargo ships, trains to construction machinery, few things can be made or moved without these fuels. That’s why America’s refiners — the companies that manufacture these fuels and more – are essential drivers of our country’s economic health and success.

As the world’s population increases and the global middle class grows, energy demand too will grow. Trucks, trains, airplanes, tractors, and modern food systems rely on access to abundant liquid fuels. American refineries provide the energy that allows people to pursue healthy, successful lives in our country — and all over the world.
