ABSTRACT
This article deals with the warning issued by the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA) regarding U.S. dependence on foreign gasoline supplies. NPRA President Bob Slaughter told a 2006 Senate hearing that additional capacity is needed to avoid increasing pricing pressures and potential disruptions to foreign gasoline supply. He warned that increasing global demand for fuels will put the U.S. in competition with other nations, and almost certainly result in upward pricing pressure.
