2014 marked the second year in a row that Valero Energy made up for sliding revenue with expanding profits. The company benefitted from improved margins thanks to cost cutting and the strength of its refining business, which saw lower costs due to crashing oil prices. Valero plans further spending cuts in 2015, with a 5% decline in capital spending, though the company is still expanding refineries in Corpus Christi and Houston.
