Tom O’Malley, PBF’s Executive Chairman, commented further on Renewable Identification Numbers (“RINs”), “We expect to spend over $200 million on RINs in 2013 based on current market conditions. This is one of the company’s largest single cost categories other than crude oil purchases. It exceeds the salaries and wages we pay to operate all three of our refineries.” Mr. O’Malley continued, “These costs will ultimately be borne by the consumer. We believe this is an expensive, non-productive tax on the American people and that the Renewable Fuels Program administered by the EPA should be adjusted so that the public does not have to absorb the costs of the program.”
