NAPA Reports Rebound in Asphalt Production
After years of declining or stagnant growth, the National Asphalt Pavement Association Reports a redound in the tons of asphalt produced in the U.S. In 2015, the industry had a nearly 6% growth rate to get back to levels last seen in 2010. On December 4th, the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act was signed into law which includes $281 billion dollars for highways and road projects. NORA anticipates that this legislation, the first long-term highway bill since 1998, may stimulate demand for Recycled Fuel Oil in certain markets, particularly where natural gas is not as competitive.
