BP's business of marketing and refining our gas in Southern California. Arco and Chevrons is now governed by Tesero and no longer do you call for assistance outsourced from India but actually talk to someone in United States. Bringing business back home. Great Start for our America.

Good to see BP leaving the area. I always knew BP stood for Bad People.

This greatly expands Tesoro's operation in Carson California. The BP refinery was next door.
"The centerpieces of the transaction are the BP refinery in Carson, which processes 266,000 barrels of crude oil per day and supplies fuel to much of the West Coast, and the company's network of about 800 gas stations in California, Arizona and Nevada.

The Carson refinery is considered a "high complexity" facility capable of processing a wider variety of crudes into California's clean-burning gasoline. The plant, a familiar sight to motorists on busy Interstate 405, is also next door to Tesoro's 97,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Wilmington, Calif.Read more: http://www.upi.com/Business_News/2012/08/13/Tesoro-buying-BP-refinery-near-Los-Angeles/UPI-14321344879588/#ixzz2ab8RJYDK

The title of the topic is misleading about BP being sold to Tesero.

You still pay too much for gas in California.

First, this is not breaking news; the sale was originally announced, I believe, more than a year ago and was completed more than a month ago.

Second, where did you get the idea that Arco and Chevron assistance was provided from India?

Bringing business back home? Can you provide some background on that? What business is "coming home" that wasn't already in the United States? And, can you explain anything about the Tesero's consolidating of operations of several of it's plants in California? I believe consolidating operations will reduce jobs, according to several stories about the sale.

Also, for your information, here's more information about the sale, directly from BP:
