Demand for diesel and gasoline has largely recovered from the worst of the coronavirus (‘COVID-19’) pandemic, though kerosene demand (jet fuel) has a way to go given depressed levels of international travel. The refining giant Phillips 66 took advantage of the rebound seen over the past year to pare down its debt levels on a consolidated basis. At the end of December 2020, Phillips 66 had $13.4 billion in net debt (inclusive of short-term debt) on a consolidated basis, which fell down to $12.0 billion in net debt (inclusive of short-term debt) at the end of September 2021. Going forward, Phillips 66 now wants to focus on returning cash to shareholders as communicated during a January 2022 investor conference. Shares of PSX yield a nice ~4.6% as of this writing.
