Best answer: Yes it can. A new steel plate has to be welded to the tower and the hood will need beating out and a repaint. If you need to spread the cost just have the tower repaired and do the hood at a later date, assuming it opens and shuts properly.

Best answer: Drilling for crude oil, transporting it and building a refinery to convert it into gasoline is a very, very expensive exercise. It's only viable because of the economy of scale so there aren't too many players. People like Costco do not get involved in oil. It's not their core business activity. What... show more
