Pennzoil-Quaker State Co., a hybrid whose namesakes were born in Oil Valley, is closing its crude oil refinery in Rouseville after 114 years of continuous use. The announcement, unexpected in its severity since many believed the refinery would be sold rather than shut down, was made Thursday. "This is just a tragedy," said Rouseville Borough Councilwoman Jill McClintock. "It will have a larger impact on the community than even Quaker State." Most of the company's nearly 300 local employees will be out of work by the end of the month.
