Operating Costs and Expenses HighlightsOperating costs and expenses were $43.6 million and $129.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, representing increases of $5.1 million and $15.7 million over the respective periods of 2012. These increases are due to higher throughput levels on our assets, as well as year-over-year increases in maintenance costs, environmental accruals, employee costs and depreciation expense due to asset abandonment charges related to tankage permanently removed from service. Operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 were reduced by $3.5 million due to a net tax refund related to payroll costs covering a multi-year period.
