BIG SPRING, TX (AP) -- A sheriff's dispatcher says an explosion rocked an oil refinery in western Texas.

It's unclear whether there are injuries or whether a fire is burning at the refinery owned by Dallas-based Alon USA, which employs about 170 people and produces about 70,000 barrels a day.

Howard County sheriff's dispatcher, who declined to give her name, said: "All I know is that it blew up."

I hope everyone is ok. I also hope I never have to get directions from this reporter.

Big Spring is about halfway between Dallas and El Paso.

It was staged by Big Oil and willing Middle Eastern terrorists to drive up gas prices.

that was my first thought.. just what the gas co's need, another reason for a gas hike..
went from 285 yesterday to 3.05 earlier today.
after this post, i'm questioning which occurred first.
