Firefighters have contained a fire that erupted yesterday at Chevron's (CVX) Richmond refinery in Northern California, but the facility is still burning. The damage and the likely outage of some or all of the 245K bbl/day facility could push gasoline prices higher for consumers in the western U.S., since it accounts for nearly 10% of the refining capacity in the region.
