The Left does not like oil companies. They have challenged Chevrons’ effort to expand in Richmond. It has cost the company millions in fee’s and attorneys and tens of millions in lost profit. No telling how many jobs were lost.

“Chevron Corp. is moving 800 jobs in the San Francisco Bay area to Texas.
The shift of about a quarter of the petroleum giant’s San Ramon headquarters staff will take place over two years.”
