BP Refinery Strike hits Whiting, Indiana

Enjoying the low gas prices? Well, there’s fear now that all could be coming to an end sooner rather than later. That’s because more than 1,000 workers at BP’s Refinery in Whiting, Indiana walked off the job early Sunday morning. Contract talks between the oil giant and the United Steelworkers of America broke down. That’s causing fear that could result in a spike at the gas pump.
