Valero profit jumps on strong refining margins
Jan 29 (Reuters) - Crude oil refiner Valero Energy Corp reported a jump in fourth-quarter profit as margins improved due to cheaper domestic crude oil.
Profit rose to $1.0 billion, or $1.82 per share, from $45 million, or 8 cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue at the largest U.S. independent refiner was flat at $34.7 billion.
