Electric vehicles are poised to reduce the demand for gasoline and diesel by 2040.

By highlighting several corporate case studies, we uncover that refinery upgrades and installation of novel technologies tapping crude oil and various refinery waste streams will require billions of dollars in capital investment leading up to 2040.
