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.

    Expect a quick jump at the pump on the coast as the article states. BP said there would be no effect on pump prices when Cherry Point was down for months, but that isn't how it turned out. Tesoro and other west coast refiners should see nice margins for a while.
