Companies must take immediate actions to increase the supply of gasoline

Biden tells oil companies in letter 'well above normal' refinery profit margins are 'not acceptable'
President Joe Biden on Wednesday called on US oil refining companies to produce more, saying they need to help alleviate the burden of high prices on consumers.

“At a time of war – historically high refinery profit margins being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable,” the president said in a letter to oil companies including Exxon Mobil and Chevron.

″[C]ompanies must take immediate actions to increase the supply of gasoline, diesel, and other refined product,” the letter added.

Biden's call comes as sky-high energy costs add to inflationary concerns across the economy. The national average for a gallon of gas crossed $5 over the weekend for the first time on record, according to AAA.

The national average now stands at $5,014, which is 54 cents more than a month ago, and $1.94 more than last year.

Refiners can't just ramp up output, and utilization rates are already above 90%. Additionally, some refiners are now being reconfigured to make alternate products like biofuel.

Refining capacity has dropped since the pandemic took hold, which is a factor in the rapid advance of fuel prices. Demand has returned as economies restart and people travel once again, but supply remains tight.

'Global challenge'
Loss of Russian refined products has exacerbated the imbalance, with Europe now looking elsewhere for fuel.

Biden said that his administration is prepared to use “all reasonable and appropriate Federal Government tools and emergency authorities to increase refinery capacity and output in the near term.”

Biden noted in his letter that the refining shortage is a “global challenge and global concern,” with around 3 million barrels per day of global capacity offline since the start of the pandemic.

Still, he pointed to the “unprecedented disconnect between the price of oil and the price of gas.”

“Since the beginning of the year, refiners’ margins for refining gasoline and diesel have tripled, and are currently at their highest levels ever recorded,” he said.

Biden noted that the last time oil was trading at $120 per barrel the average price of gas at the pump was about $4.25 per gallon.

Oil prices initially fell after Biden’s letter was released, but West Texas Intermediate, the U.S. benchmark, is nearly flat, trading just under $119.

The president's letter was also addressed to global giants BP and Shell, as well as refiners Marathon Petroleum, Valero Energy and Phillips 66. Shares of Exxon, Chevron and the refiners were all down slightly in premarket trading.

“The crunch that families are facing deserves immediate action. Your companies need to work with my Administration to bring forward concrete, near-term solutions that address the crisis,” Biden said.

'Nothing left to ramp up'
Still, there is no easy solution. John Kilduff, partner at Again Capital, said refiners are working at historically high level.
