      BP has moved into first place as being the most dangerous refineries to work for or in, bumping EXXONMOBIL off the first place block. Texas City Texas, OSHA set up trailers on the property because they were good for at least one D.O.A. a year since 2005. This might have an impact on the sale of the refinery and other holdings being sold off to pay for the Gulf. I would like a company that treats people with dignity and respect like CHEVRON take that place over and turn it into another money pit and bring a few more jobs to the So. Cal. area.
