July 30 (Reuters) - U.S. refiner Valero Energy Corp's quarterly profit more than doubled as refining margins rose due to a steep fall in oil prices.

Net income from continuing operations attributable to Valero's stockholders rose to $1.35 billion, or $2.66 per share, in the second quarter ended June 30 from $651 million, or $1.22 per share, a year earlier.

The San Antonio-based company's operating revenue fell 28 percent to $25.12 billion. (Reporting by Amrutha Gayathri in Bengaluru; Editing by Kirti Pandey)
