--Robinhood FAQs --
- VISIT THE WEBSITE FIRST DAMMIT!! - www.robinhood.com

How is it free?
Robinhood earns revenue by collecting interest on the cash and securities in Robinhood accounts, much like a bank collects interest on cash deposits and by collecting fees from robinhood gold.

It's been X days, why isn't my account verified yet?
Not being approved in 3 days seems to be the new norm. Nevertheless, call/email their support if you've been waiting more than that.

When is it coming to my country?
The only "plans" are on an Australian and Chinese beta. Neither of which has gained much traction.

I hit sell when the stock was X.XX, but it actually sold at a lower price, why?
Robinhood graphs are shit and only show you an average, not true real-time prices. To get Bid/Ask prices and important things like candlestick graphs, you should use a more robust platform.

Where can I get better charting or bid/ask?
Real brokers, like TDAmeritrade's thinkorswim. Otherwise you should be using tradingview.com, stockcharts.com, finviz.com, or a non-pile-of-shit for your graphing in addition to Robinhood.

I'm getting a little nervous fir my XIV position. The VIX's floor is usually around 10 and we're at 10.78. Probably going to be time to pull out soon and jump on the next UVXY pop. The problem is the VIX can float in low 10s high nines for days before we get a catalyst that causes the spike.

I've mentioned HIMX 3 weeks ago when it was in the sub $8. it just hit $10 today cause of the Qualcomm collaboration news. They lifted the NDA.

HIMX has NDA's with every single one of their customers and their biggest customer is Apple. Once NDA's are lifted for the rest of their customers or when people take apart the iPhone 8 and review the insides, they will will see that they are using HIMX and it'll skyrocket

According to biopharmcatalyst.com/

The catalyst date is the LATEST expected date for the catalyst to occur by. For example, if the catalyst date is 12/31/17, the event is expected to occur BY 12/31/17. It does NOT necessarily mean that the catalyst will occur ON this date. In most cases it will occur BEFORE.

This was the case for PRTK back when I was shilling it. Their data was released two weeks before the end of the month deadline.

Should be a good buy, though. The average of all price targets is $29--the most common targets for the next 3 months being $20 and $45. If the data is really good, one analyst says we could expect a price target of $70. Growth hormone deficiency usually requires daily injections, and there are only 2 companies that have extended release products. If Versartis' extended release GH proves successful, it could capture 30% of the GH market by 2020.

Who's going to ship all the gasoline from Europe to America to supply the North East after Harvey took all our refineries out? Is it a good time to buy TOPS they've got liquid tankers.

Soft_member
Soft_member

no but its preventing people trading stocks that have "high risk" because stocks like DRYS cause every new comer to think a stock is a scam.

If no newcomers come into the market no new money flows into the market. How do you not understand how that works? where do you think money in the market comes from?

SNAP is another one that has probably already killed alot of the young generation optimisim to the market because again they think everything is a scam and then they don't put money in the market.

In the long run you want to incourage investing in the market as a whole to bring in new money. Trying to get newbs to lose money on scams is a good way to discourage growth in the equitys market.

buy the ones you think will do good during holidays now and sell right before their earnings for that period. If that makes sense.

For example, if you buy Target(TGT) right now and ride it up through the holidays and then sell it a day or two before earnings (if you have gains) you might do alright. i wouldn't gamble on the earnings afterward, id just take my money and run, theres plenty of other plays out there.

SGBY- about to be at the conference in LA this weekend, could be a really good play if you buy in tomorrow its hitting a double bottom and could bounce up.

ICLD just went through a reverse split and is now at the bottom after reducing the float, this is a good thing! VNDM BMIC and VFIN have been buying shares here and there, It should move soon as soon as they're done playing with it.

MYDX- after a long sideways accumulation phase expect a move up to over .01 easy double on that.

That UVXY weekend hold sounds kinda appealing. Ima keep an eye on it.

I could get burned holding this into Tuesday, but we are approaching the all time high on the S&P, and with how fucked shit is in Houston, I would be surprised if we do see it break through that level. It will be really interesting to see how the markets react Tuesday.

Katrina aftershocks: Biz roundup
Wall Street is looking at how Hurricane Katrina will affect business, the markets and the economy.
Here's the latest news on how they are responding, and what market watchers should look for in the coming weeks.
There's a growing sense that the economy could take a much bigger hit than originally expected, meaning the Fed may have to pause from its interest rate hikes.
Plus: The devastation of Hurricane Katrina will also take a big bite out of job creation for months to come, analysts said, as companies spending more on energy spend less on hiring.
Oil Prices eased slightly off their highs on Friday as the U.S. tapped emergency oil reserves.
The jump in oil prices was a boon for hedge-funds betting that the price of oil would rise.
Corporate earnings
Analysts expect Katrina to take a big bite out of corporate earnings, except in the energy and construction sectors, as high energy prices hit consumer spending and corporate budgets.
corporations will not be able to exclude costs related to the hurricane when reporting their financial results
Corporations are contributing millions of dollars in relief aid to cope with the destruction
Insured losses may total as much as $25 billion, but insurers' stocks have held up well, with the S&P insurance index falling less than 1 percent this week.
Reinsurers may pay a bigger share of claims That could prove costly for hedge funds with large investments in reinsurance.
Northwest Airlines, hurt by soaring fuel costs, predicted a quarterly loss of up to $400 million and said it may be forced to file for bankruptcy.
reduced air travel to the region could push Delta Air Lines into bankruptcy and that lower demand and higher fuel prices will weigh on airlines generally.

September 6, 2005
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit causing widespread power outages and catastrophic damage including portions of Entergy Corporation's (NYSE: ETR) service territory
In total, these four operating companies had approximately 1.1 million customers without power immediately following the storm.

Entergy anticipates that this event will influence the financial results of Entergy Corporation and of these operating companies although estimates of the effects are not available at this time. For example:
Revenues are expected to be lower due to extended outages, customer losses, and inability to bill and collect revenues for electricity previously delivered to customers whose property has been destroyed;
Capital and other expenditures are expected to be higher due to the restoration, repair and replacement of damaged equipment and assets; and
Regulatory mechanisms may be modified or created to provide for recovery of restoration costs and lost revenues in a more timely and complete manner than available under currently-in-place cost recovery methods.

Entergy Corporation believes it has sufficient liquidity to meet its current obligations and to fund its restoration efforts from a combination of cash on hand and its $2 billion revolver.
Entergy is unable to affirm previously-issued consolidated as-reported and operational 2005 earnings per share guidance of $4.60 to $4.85 per share for Entergy Corporation. In addition, Entergy is unable to affirm its 8-10% earnings growth aspiration for 2006 and it expects to revise previously disclosed estimates of cash flow and cash available to reflect revenue, cost and recovery outcomes when they can be more accurately estimated. Finally, Entergy is able to affirm that its $1.5 billion share repurchase program remains in place, even though the timing of repurchases under this program may be temporarily delayed.

Katrina may lift Home Depot, Lowe's
Published: Aug 29, 2005
Already, sales at the nation's two largest home-improvement retailers have been brisk as consumers have stocked up on plywood and safety supplies such as flashlights, batteries and even playing cards ahead of the storms.
Sales also will continue to track well after the storm settles, as consumers look to rebuild homes, businesses and other properties damaged in Katrina's path. In Florida, for example, chain saws and sump pumps are in big demand. In New Orleans, mosquito-abatement products, not to mention mops and brooms, will be needed.
But the storm's effect on sales depends in part on how much damage the home-improvement stores themselves suffer and how long they have to be closed.
"Any near-term profit benefit is typically muted given stores closings and damage, the cost of replenishing these stores and the lower-margin mix associated with rebuilding," Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Fassler said.
He's expecting incremental sales growth at Home Depot of 0.3% to 0.4% and at Lowe's of 0.5% to 0.6%.
Meanwhile, investors are building up the value of both companies. Shares of Home Depot HD, -0.09% a Dow component, jumped 1.8%, or 73 cents, to close at $40.54. Lowe's LOW, -0.03% stock added $1.42, or 2.3%, to $64.60.

Harvey Is Testing Texan Telecoms
The catastrophic flooding in Houston and its surroundings has put strain on communication networks and brought about network outages.
carriers including Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint offered customers affected by tropical storm Harvey free calls, text messages, and data.
To top it off, the Wall Street Journal says some areas suffered almost total telecom outages as a result of infrastructure damage caused by flooding and high winds. As of Sunday, some regions, such as Rockport, Texas, had as many as 95 percent of cell towers out of action. The Federal Communications Commission also told the newspaper that 148,565 people were left without wired connections in the region. It’s thought that many of the outages won’t be rectified until roads are deemed safe enough for technicians to travel.
some firms have been trying to develop systems that use local Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections on smartphones to transfer data even when networks are down.

Insurance Companies Are Preparing Fleets of Drones to Assess the Damage of Harvey
hundreds of flying robots will ascend above the city and region to assess Hurricane Harvey’s damage.
millions will probably get paid out by insurance companies. But this year, instead of relying on insurance adjusters with hardhats and clipboards to climb onto claimants’ roofs and decide what they are owed, insurance companies in many cases will use drones to inspect the aftermath.
“This will be the widest scale event that we’ve used drones for to date,” said Justin Herndon, a spokesman for Allstate. Herndon says his company expects to conduct hundreds of drone flights per day after Harvey. Farmer’s, another major property insurance company, is also planning to deploy drones
Telecom companies also say they have drones on hand to inspect infrastructure after Harvey. Last year, in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, when the roads were too submerged for cars to drive, Verizon flew drones to check cellular site locations for connectivity and damage, which was more efficient than driving a boat with technicians to check each site individually.
Drones mean that the insurance-claim professionals who will be assessing the damage won’t actually have to be there for the inspection.
after which it sends out technicians from a drone company with which it contracts to conduct the flights and take the high-definition images.
for the first time, many are going to be asked if they’d like to have a robot come out and assess their losses—a potentially less precise and certainly less personal process,
Hurricane Harvey could leave Texas with as much as $30 billion in damages, according estimates from Enki Holdings, an analytics firm, though only 40 percent of that may be covered by insurance.

Q: what's the company they are contracting with and is it a public company?

Aug. 30, 2017
Travelers Cos., a large commercial and personal-property insurer, has about 24 drones ready to be used in Texas and about 200 Travelers employees certified by the FAA as drone pilots, according to a spokesman.

Allstate Corp. expects to make hundreds of flights a day and thousands a week with drones that it uses on a contract basis It already routinely uses drones to settle claims in Texas and three other states.

Farmers Insurance, one of the top homeowners’ insurers in Texas, has seven drones available for use in Texas and 14 adjusters who are trained to use them. Adjusters using drones can inspect three homes an hour, while an inspector without a drone could take more than an hour to climb onto a badly damaged roof and inspect it. The company has received more than 14,000 claims reports as of midday Wednesday

State Farm, the largest homeowners’ and personal car insurer in Texas, isn’t currently using drones in its Harvey claims handling

Other insurers want to evaluate the situation further before they commit their fleets. United Services Automobile Association, or USAA, had 10,000 claims as of Tuesday from various places hit by Harvey, but it hasn’t yet made the decision to use 12 of its own drones and additional ones under contract. It had adjusters in Corpus Christi, Texas, on Tuesday assessing the situation. “We’re trying to survey what type of damage is there to know whether or not we need to deploy the drones” San Antonio-based USAA used drones to assess damage in April after a heavy hailstorm in its home city.

Chubb Ltd. , a big business insurer that also specializes in insuring expensive homes and other property of wealthy people, will mostly use drones for commercial property or to reach areas that are inaccessible, like barrier islands, said Fran O’Brien, who heads the company’s high-net-worth business.

San Antonio-based USAA is banking that using drones to inspect homes for damages will streamline insurance claims and reduce cost of processing them,
It saves money," Tomasetti said. Such savings can exceed 50 percent of a claim's cost for USAA, she said.

the company says drones will speed up the claims process, which means its customers will, in theory, get paid faster. ‘UAVs can help accelerate surveys of disaster areas with high resolution images for faster claims handling, risk assessment, and payments,’ They can also quickly and safely reach areas that could be dangerous or inaccessible for manual inspection

information-management.com/news/drones-to-figure-heavily-in-harvey-response-for-insurers
As Hurricane Harvey continues to hammer the Texas coast, insurers plan on leveraging drones and digital channels to address an expected barrage of claims
It's likely to be a major test of the increasing amount of investment insurers have made in the technology, as well as partnerships with drone service providers, over the past several years.

Can't find any public companies "drone service providers", but I guess the take away could be that you can expect the flood of money to come faster than in past years so rise in other stocks (like construction companies for example) would be faster than it has in the past, and can expect the bottom line for the insurance companies to be not as bad in years past since they are saying doing it this way should be about 50% cheaper.

Coffee Slumps as Houston Supplies Remain Dry
Coffee futures slumped Wednesday as fears lifted that coffee supplies in Houston ports had been damaged by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
The National Coffee Association said Wednesday that there has been no damage to coffee in warehouses. The Green Coffee Association said in its monthly report that 867,726 bags of coffee were stored in Houston warehouses as of the end of July out of a total of 7,413,312 bags stored in U.S. warehouses overall. Houston is second only to New York in the amount of coffee stored.
"As the storage facilities are located at higher parts of the town losses are not expected at this moment," said Rodrigo Costa, director of trading

Texas cotton-growing regions affected by Hurricane Harvey
Up to 400,000 bales still on stalk prior to hurricane strike
Texas cotton-growing regions in the upper coastal and lower Blacklands areas have been severely impacted by Hurricane Harvey, said a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service cotton marketing economist.
Dr. John Robinson, College Station, said harvest activities were only 40 percent complete leading up to the arrival of Hurricane Harvey.
“I have also heard there are 300,000 to 400,000 bales worth of cotton still on the stalk in the affected region,” he said. “Assuming those estimates are accurate, there are a number of possible outcomes.”
Robinson said high winds sliced through many cotton fields, obliterating stalks and lint.
“Those growers will face a 100 percent loss and likely have an insurance claim on that basis,” he said. “Second, some fields will face not only a lot of wind and rain damage, but the uneconomical task of drying out, harvesting and selling degraded cotton lint that is heavily discounted in price.”
Either of those outcomes “will be a disaster at the farm level,” Robinson said.
Additionally, it is unknown what the extent of damages to cotton in storage warehouses, he noted.
Meanwhile, Robinson said cotton markets will settle once the uncertainty from Hurricane Harvey fades.
“The loss of 300,000 bales does not translate to more than a penny or so impact from the base price or the futures market (contract) price,” he said. “The main aggregate market effect will be figured into the cash market with higher premiums being offered for scarcer, good-quality cotton for the next couple of months.”

Manufacturers, retailers likely to see supply chain ‘hiccup’ following Hurricane Harvey
Hurricane Harvey’s impact is expected to spread through many parts of the country thanks to supply chain disruptions for retailers and manufacturers that will range from minor to significant.
Major infrastructure damage in the Houston area – the fifth largest metro in the United States – includes the closing of three major seaports, interstate access to warehouse facilities near the ports and railroad operations.
Kevin Kelly, founder of Recon Capital Partners, said the retail sector will take some hit because of global shipping in and out of Houston-area ports. He said if the Port of Houston is closed longer than anticipated it will give trucking and rail industries more pricing power over retailers and manufacturers to get product moved.
Marty Shell, president of Five Rivers Distribution, which operates the ports did predict a “hiccup” in the supply chain because several manufacturers who containerize shipments do so out of the Houston area. He said much of the inbound traffic on the river comes from ports in New Orleans, Houston
And while trucking companies and railroads may see more business, Shell said they will pay much more for fuel in the coming weeks.
Jim Craig, executive vice president of Van Buren-based USA Truck and president of USAT Logistics, said shipping and logistics demand will be “extraordinary” in the near future.
“We have already been in contact with many of our customers to provide capacity for relief supplies and are providing some service already. We anticipate extraordinary on-going capacity demand for many months as the needs transition from relief supplies to materials needed to rebuild what has been lost,”

Aug. 29, 2017
Harvey continues to drop massive amounts of rain – in some areas more than 4 feet has fallen – on vulnerable livestock and unharvested crops, while blowing cotton modules off farms.
It may be weeks until a full assessment can be made of the damage done by Harvey to crops and livestock in
it’s already obvious that a lot of cotton, corn, soybeans, sorghum and animals will have been lost by the time the flood waters recede, which could be weeks.
“We had the best crop ever and only a fourth of it was ginned the damage north of us is terrible and almost total to modules, crops still in the field, and the gins themselves.” Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller told that the state will suffer at least $150 million in agricultural damage from Harvey, but he predicts the toll will be higher. He says he knows of more than a hundred cotton modules that have been blown off farms. While most of the cotton has been harvested in Texas, the biggest cotton-growing state, more than half the fields in the El Campo area outside Houston were not when Harvey’s deluge began.

kizzmybutt
kizzmybutt

Gaylon Morgan, a professor and extension agronomist at Texas A&M University, told Agri-Pulse that much of that cotton was still on the stalk and had been defoliated. The Rio Grande Valley area is cotton country and there will likely be significant losses, according to Morgan. Most of the cotton in the Corpus Christi area has already been harvested, but much of it is likely still in modules on the ground and susceptible to flood damage. “Under high wind and heavy rain, there will likely be substantial yield losses for what’s left in those fields,” Morgan said. Even cotton as far away as the Austin area will see yield loss from the excessive rains, he said. But just because some farmers got their cotton to the gin before Harvey hit doesn’t mean they’re in the clear, Miller said. “Some of the gins got destroyed and others were damaged,” the commissioner said. “Even if (farmers) got their cotton to the gin, it doesn’t mean they got paid for it.” And much of the cotton delivered to gins has been soaked. So those gins still operational will be forced to sit idle and wait for the moisture to reduce enough to “gin at a much-reduced pace,”

Many Texas rice farmers are in the same position, Miller said. About 80 percent of the state’s rice has been harvested, but some of the storage facilities holding the rice have been damaged.

David Anderson, a professor and extension economist in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Texas A&M University, tells Agri-Pulse says he sees a dire threat to much of the 1.2 million head of cattle (that’s about 27 percent of the state’s total) in the 54 Texas counties that have declared a disaster because of Harvey. Ranchers only had a few days to try to move their cattle to high ground before Harvey hit, Anderson said, but in many areas, there is no high ground and the bulk of the animals were left to face the storm. “It’s too early to know anything about the impact on the number of head, but certainly this kind of disaster is still ongoing because we’ll have cows out there in flooded pastures and no feed,”

The situation is far less dire in Louisiana, but the rains are worsening there and threatening crops as Harvey looms. Cotton and soybean farmers could be facing losses “The big problem right now is delays in harvesting. Our corn farmers were busy harvesting right up until the rain bands started to move in the state.” The biggest potential for damage, he said, is to soybeans and cotton. A lot of the cotton bolls are just beginning to open, he said, and that makes the crop vulnerable. Much of the soybean crop has defoliated and farmers were waiting until plants dried before harvesting, he said. But now there’s more moisture on the way

South Texas Cotton and Grain Association said crop losses may be as high as $150 million
Cotton farmers in the Upper Coastal Bend were some of the hardest-hit ag producers, with hundreds of cotton modules blown apart by gale-force winds and many more lying wet in fields and at gin yards. 13 of the 50 counties declared disaster areas by Governor Abbott are cotton-producing areas. Texas rice producers had already harvested around 75 percent of this year’s crops, but storage bins may have undergone extensive wind and water damage, leading to more crop losses. Wheat, soybean and corn exports all ground to a halt late last week as Texas ports prepared for the oncoming hurricane. Texas is responsible for exporting almost one-fourth of the nation’s wheat and a significant portion of U.S. corn and soybeans.
Texas is also home to one-third of U.S. oil refineries, so fuel prices are expected to rise over the next few weeks while those refineries remain offline.

How Home Depot Braced for (and Profited From) Harvey’s Impact
the world's largest home improvement retailer set up a temporary hurricane command center at its Atlanta headquarters. It told managers to freeze prices and move plywood, generators, chainsaws and other storm-related merchandise to the front of stores. By Aug. 31, Home Depot had sent about 700 truckloads of supplies to its Texas stores in the path of the hurricane. As the streets began to flood over the weekend the command center began ordering stores to shut down. But trucks still rolled out of a dedicated warehouse, stocked with hurricane defense and recovery products In its response, Home Depot followed a plan honed over many hurricane seasons, which aims to minimize disruptions and ensure that it can continue to deliver essential materials and equipment to the affected areas. It is also designed to allow the retailer to capitalize on a surge in demand for its products once repairs begin. Before the hurricane season begins each summer, the retailer stocks everything from flashlights to shovels in dedicated centers. It pre-loads trucks so they can leave for stores as soon as a hurricane alert comes from a weather vendor. "As each natural disaster goes by, we hone our processes already in place so we can react quicker and faster the next time this happens,"

Moody's Analytics estimates Harvey could cost southeast Texas $51 billion to $75 billion in losses, ranking it among the costliest storms in U.S. history. Private forecaster Planalytics on Monday said Harvey could cost retailers $1 billion in lost sales. However, with planning and preparation, Home Depot (HD), its rival Lowe's (LOW), other home improvement retailers like Menards, Ace Hardware, True Value and their online counterparts like Wayfair could see a sales boost. After Hurricane Sandy barreled into the New Jersey shoreline in late October of 2012, Home Depot attributed $242 million of fourth quarter sales to a boost in business arising from the repairs.
Much depends on a quick response to big storms. By Saturday up to 200 employees drafted from merchandising, logistics, supply chain and human resources teams were marshaling people and goods from Home Depot's buzzing five-room command center filled with monitors tracking the storm and maps of the hurricane region pasted on walls. On Sunday, 80 employees arrived from Austin, Texas capital far from the danger zone, to stock stores in Corpus Christi, a coastal city hit by the storm . At the Corpus Christi store, Home Depot workers placed pallets of bottled water, flashlights, gas cans and batteries near the cash registers.
Along with the hardware sellers, railroads, trucking companies, logistics firms and others that make up the supply-chain of the economy also faced the challenge of providing essential goods to Texas

Home Depot said it was too early to compare the scale of this year's operation with earlier efforts or to estimate how much Harvey would cost it. >Burt Flickinger, managing director of retail consultancy Strategic Resource Group estimates it cost the retailer about $50 million to deal with hurricanes Rita and Katrina in 2005 and expects Harvey's costs to top that. "They are a clear leader with disaster response and their strategic planning during such times is better than any retailer globally," he said. While discount chains or department stores would bear the costs while missing out on revenue because of lost business, what Home Depot spent was an investment that would eventually bring "10 to 15 times more in sales," Flickinger said.
Home Depot's storm plan shows how preparing for natural disasters has become over the years an inherent part of the retailers' business. The company, with annual sales of $95 billion, first identified hurricane response as a strategic need after Hurricane Andrew, 25 years ago. It has refined its tactics since. Just over a decade ago it has established four distribution centers with hurricane-specific goods within easy reach of hurricane-prone coastal areas
For Harvey, Home Depot used Baytown, a warehouse in Dallas and one in Winchester, Virginia. Texas contributes about 10% to Home Depot's revenue, according to research firm Global Data.
Thanks to upgraded inventory tracking technology, store managers now know when to expect emergency shipments. Such precise information was not yet at hand at the time Hurricane Sandy struck almost five years ago. Now it helps retailers to limit losses by re-opening stores as fast as possible.

Harvey has knocked out a significant portion of the nation's oil refining capacity
More than a dozen Texas refining facilities have shut down since the storm hit. (
The nation’s biggest oil refinery shut down Wednesday as Harvey continued to hammer the core of the U.S. industry that turns crude oil into gasoline.
The storm’s record rainfall has already reduced U.S. oil production capacity by nearly a fifth
Lasting closures or damage to Gulf Coast facilities could lead to a long-term increase in gasoline prices, experts said.

At least one facility, a processing plant owned by Arkema Inc. in the small town of Crosby, will probably face an “intense fire”

Arkema operates a plant in Crosby, Texas, which flooded during Hurricane Harvey in August 2017. Arkema said it was unable to prevent the possibility of an explosion at the plant,[26][27] and on August 31 explosions were reported to be coming from the plant.

In the last decade, oil and gas production along the Gulf Coast has surpassed the boom of the 1970s, spurred by the use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. The area from Corpus Christi to Lake Charles, La., now represents nearly half of the country’s refining capacity.
“The fall is longer if the cliff is higher,” said Michael Webber, deputy director of the Energy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. “The energy sector here is more important than it was a decade ago, which means it’s more of a calamity.”
In cities like Beaumont and Port Arthur, a significant share of the workforce is employed in petroleum and chemical processing, Webber said. “There are refinery towns, chemical towns,” Webber said. “Their fate is tied to the energy industry.”

The refineries shutting down could have a “cascade effect” on production, Webber said, because companies in other parts of Texas and across the country will have fewer places to ship their crude oil for processing.
In anticipation of a fuel shortage, the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday issued two-week waivers for a dozen states and the District of Columbia to allow the sale of gasoline that does not comply with clean air laws.

In case anyone was wondering, according to this in circumstances like this they are exempt from fines they would have to pay in normal circumstances.

August 30, 2017
Oil refineries and chemical plants are 24-hour operations. They’re not designed to be turned off. But when a hurricane barreled through the refinery and chemical plant capital of the United States, many didn’t have a choice.
When refineries are forced to shut down—as were at least 11 along the Texas coast and the greater Houston area, due to Hurricane Harvey—they often release far greater volumes of toxic air pollution than the normal legal limits would allow. In industry parlance, these pollution spikes are called “exceptional events.” The excess pollution is considered an emergency necessity to prevent worse outcomes, like an explosion, so plants are exempt from fines they would ordinarily pay for exceeding their legal pollution limits.
Almost half of the country’s petroleum and natural gas refining capacity sits along the Gulf Coast, and Houston, 30 miles inland, is home to the largest refining petrochemical production complex in the country. Around 16% of US refining capacity has been interrupted by the storm.
