Energy Scene with Jason Spiess

As I drove into Dickinson, taking a moment to soak in the event I was about to experience, I noticed diesel was selling for less than gasoline.  At the time, I was more interested in understanding why the Dakota Prairie Refinery was the first greenfield refinery in the United States in nearly
40 years.

Upon arrival I quickly found out I wasn’t the only one who noticed the price of diesel was selling for less than gasoline.  Then a presentation of the new refinery came. This presentation was a celebration of the hard work, investment and completion of the Calumet Specialty Products and MDU Resources partnership.
