We manufacture the fuels that power the cars, trucks and buses that get millions of people to work and to school each day. We make the petrochemicals that go into thousands of products like plastics, computers, and medical equipment. If you can imagine it, chances are our products will be part of it.
We own and operate 110 refineries that manufacture 94 percent of the refined petroleum products made in the United States and 229 petrochemical facilities. U.S. refineries and petrochemical facilities are among the most technologically advanced and efficient in the world.
We make significant investments that increase the safety of our employees, facilities and communities, and reduce the impact on the environment. Today, affordable fuels and petrochemicals are made and refined more safely, cleanly and efficiently than ever before, and more breakthroughs are to come.
We are proud of the people of our industries. The fuel and petrochemical industries are two of the largest U.S. industries and collectively support nearly three million American jobs in 33 states. We offer a wide range of opportunities for those looking for high-growth careers.
We contribute nearly $600 billion to the U.S. economy including more than $65 billion in federal taxes and $21 billion in state and local taxes last year. Our facilities are tightly linked to their communities and this money directly supports first responders, teachers and other public employees. This is in addition to the thousands of volunteer hours our employees contribute in their local communities.
