AFPM President and CEO Chet Thompson and API President and CEO Mike Sommers sent a letter to President Biden responding to recent letters the Administration sent to major U.S. fuel refiners suggesting that these companies, their workforces and facilities throughout the country aren’t doing their part to bring fuel to the market and lower energy costs for consumers.
We are surprised and disappointed by the President’s letter. Any suggestion that U.S. refiners are not doing our part to bring stability to the market is false. We would encourage the Administration to look inward to better understand the role their policies and hostile rhetoric have played in the current environment.
Fuel Refiners, Petrochemical Manufacturers Urge Congressional Democrats to Stand Strong, Reject New Taxes on American-Refined Energy, Plastics

The fuel and petrochemical industries employ highly trained, talented people who produce the fuels, feedstocks and products that are critical
Employee health and safety is top priority for the fuel and petrochemical industries, and the COVID outbreak has necessitated a number of changes to business operations.
The fuel and petrochemical industries have a long history of supporting the communities in which they live and operate, and they have amped up that support during this difficult time.
We took a moment to speak with Adam Ali, AFPM’s Manager of Workforce Development, about changes in the workplace employees are experiencing – including what happens when someone tests positive for COVID-19 — and actions being taken to protect and support the workforce.
With a wave of retirements looming in the next decade, many in the petrochemical and refinery sectors are looking to a 40-year industry veteran to prepare the next generation of highly qualified workers.
AFPM exists to serve its members and to act as the voice of the fuel and petrochemical industries in Washington and across the United States.
