Refiners post strong gains as Gulf Coast refineries shut down with Isaac's approach: Marathon (MPC +1.7%) and Phillips 66 (PSX +0.2%) shut two Louisiana refineries with a combined capacity of 711K bbl/day, while Valero (VLO +5.5%) shuts two with a combined 405K bbl/day capacity;  Another factor pushing up prices is an explosion that shut operations at Venezuela's Amuay refinery.

    I concur.. Been losing a little bit with 'em, but will continue to hold for the

     

    long term. COP is the one that's up!!! Making up for loss by owning

     

    COP.

    oddly enough PSX is my best earner right now (up 30% since the split). I own COP too of course so both are winners in my book.

    Have no fear about Issac. Everything will work out just fine.
