The union that represents refinery workers is promoting a strike. In anticipation of the strike, a lot of refineries in the USA are planning to take their capacity down and conduct maintenance, modernization, and expansion. That will also tend to push the prices higher. Worse, it will reduce reserves as we approach the summer driving season. A perfect storm.
