Ha! I only wish. :-)

Actually, management spent a bit of time in the last call discussing the Brent-WTI spread and pointing out that because they buy the cheaper WTI oil, they get to benefit from this diverging price. If I remember correctly, the reason for that is because they sell the refined products on the coasts (which are exposed to the Brent oil price), as well as inland, but are not subject to the high Brent prices that the coasts see (and they're including the Gulf coast, here).

Cheers,
Jim
