"Western Refining is dedicated to being a good steward of the environment, and is committed to the people and resources of New Mexico."
So, when you guys waterblast the oil and gas that has spilled at your filling stations with fresh water and allow it to enter the storm drains, you are being being stewards of the environment. What a crock.

Is this some sort of new or unfamiliar concept to you? How else do you think they'd pay the fine? They get all......ALL their money from the public. That's how they stay in business. They are a business. Got it?

Watch the price of gasoline and diesel in Farmington sore as Western gets the money back from you and me.

Just goes to show, the bastards should be locked-up, not fined.
