The largest independent refiner in the U.S. operates more than a dozen refineries around the world, capable of running through more than three million barrels of oil per day. Profits and revenue have softened in recent years, however, particularly as Valero can no longer cash in on a surplus of oil in the U.S. Oil isn’t its only business, though: Valero also holds renewable assets and is one of the largest producers of ethanol, making well over a billion gallons of the fuel per year.
