The federal government will announce an $83.5 million plan to support oil refineries as part of its commitment to fuel security.

The refineries will receive at least 1 cent a litre for petrol, diesel and jet fuel they produce from January 1.

“The truth is that for many, many, years our refineries have played an important role in ensuring that we have the fuel we need when we need it.”
