The uncertainty over refinery production roiled the energy markets.

"Much higher oil demand is the holy grail for oil bulls". Almost 20 percent of the country's daily gasoline refining capacity is now offline - that's more than 2.5 million barrels a day. "We have a supply disruption event in gasoline production". "That's only somewhat offset by the slowdown in production".
