Detroit, MI - February 1: View of the Marathon Oil Refinery close to the southwestern most border of Detroit. During her time as a state representative in 2013, Rashida Tlaib indepentently tested a toxic substance that was polluting the air and Detroit River called petroleum coke, or petcoke, proving it was harmful. As a result then mayor of Detroit Dave Bing, stepped in and made Marathon properly store the petcoke piles so they wouldn't be polluting the neighborhoods and river. As a result of the industry in Southwest Detroit and cities further down the Detroit River asthma rates and other respatory issues are extremely common.

Marathon Petroleum's No. 31 ranking represents a sharp jump due to the Ohio-based company's purchase of fellow refiner Andeavor for $23 billion, a deal that made Marathon the largest refiner in the U.S. The newfound scale has allowed the company to take advantage of cheap shale gas, and more easily sidestep the impact of U.S. sanctions on Venezuela, previously a major source of crude. Revenue rose nearly 44% to $97 billion in 2018, even as profits took a hit from the acquisition. The number of barrels Marathon processed surged 56% in the fourth quarter, following the completion of the Andeavor deal in October.
