    TSO just makes me nervous as hell. With AB32 starting to affect refiners in 2015, I just don't see how the West Coast will be a good place for refiners going forward.

    Looks like a lot of the Libya blockades have been lifted, this could push Brent prices down. On the other hand Ukraine just keeps on getting worse.

    AH: Agree with your thoughts. I'm not sure I Like TSO long term though, as in 2015 and beyond, because of the new AB32 requirements starting to hit refiners which could eat into their profits big time

    Personally I think there earnings will suck this quarter, but that's just a guess on my part. I think they will do better in Q2 though as the West Coast gas crack is over $20 right now
