U.S. Gasoline Requirements
A “boutique fuel” is a specialized fuel formulation that is unique to a particular market, usually by virtue of federal, state or local laws, and that cannot be obtained from other markets in the same regional distribution system. Boutique fuels can contribute to tight supplies and price volatility, particularly when there is a supply disruption or stress. Nothing is more important in our business than the reliability of supply and a rigid system of state-specific boutique fuels reduces that reliability. The proliferation of these fuels in recent years has presented significant challenges to U.S. refiners and resulted in an inflexible fuel system.
