The refinery benchmark margin represents a 6-3-2-1 Value-Added Benchmark beginning March 1, 2011 as a result of the sale of the Toledo refinery. Prior to that date, the weighted-average refinery benchmark margin was comprised of a 6-3-2-1 Value-Added benchmark related to the Northeast refining operations (80% weight) and a 4-3-1 Benchmark related to the Toledo refinery (20% weight). Beginning with the second quarter of 2011, the 6-3-2-1 Value-Added Benchmark has been adjusted to reflect market conditions more closely associated with the Company's Northeast refining system. The 6-3-2-1 benchmark component of prior period weighted-average benchmark margins has been restated for comparative purposes.

***

Reflects a 175 thousand barrels-per-day reduction beginning in January 2012 attributable to the Marcus Hook refinery which was indefinitely idled in the fourth quarter of 2011 and a 170 thousand barrels-per-day reduction beginning in March 2011 attributable to the sale of the Toledo refinery.
