I like your comment, "whatever." And which is the most expensive gas station in town? The Kwik Fill just outside the refinery gates! That one always cracks me up :)

Yes, just dandy, there's 800-1000 people coming in and spending money, but what about the financial impact of completely shutting down and having over 4000 townspeople out of work for several weeks? I hope they are still getting paid. Another issue is getting all these people TO Warren, since there are no highways in the county.

Having worked on the road most of my adult life I can say 800 to 1000 workers from out of town for two and a half months will help out alot. And no matter who comes to this to 1 horse town some people(whatever) will always whine. They always have these great suggestions about bringing money here as long as someone else does it then still complain not in my back yard.

Warren is already a ghost town, with our without URC.

Just be lucky that you have URC to employ people, otherwise Warren would be a ghost town. I was visiting there this past weekend and gas is 15 cents cheaper than central, pa where I currently reside.

So they will bend over backwards for this community entity by inconveniencing the entire town for 2 and a half months, but they couldn't approve a variance on a sign. Seems legit. - What does the community get in return from accommodating United Refining's needs? 15-20¢ more per gallon than the rest of NW PA. Seems fair.

One question.....How much did they propose for the use of the city parking?
