The independent oil refiner, which also owns over 5,000 gas stations, has been one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S. in recent years. So it comes as a surprise to see a dip in profit.

The reason? Oil refiners saw margins squeezed last year, as crude prices spiked while the rise in gas prices didn't keep pace. Valero also had some unplanned refinery outages, and is now selling off underperforming facilities.
