"Three weeks into a walkout at 11 refineries around the country, the impact on the prices of gasoline, diesel and other fuels is barely discernible," reports AP Energy Writer Jonathan Fahey. 

"If autoworkers strike, cars stop coming off the line. If teachers strike, kids don't go to school. But refineries are different. They are like giant pressure cookers, and once they are up and running they don't need all that much elbow grease to keep oil flowing in and fuels coming out."
