You don't expect tears from a group of hard-bitten oil executives, but there they were. Jonathan Stuart, the plant manager for Valero's St. Charles oil refinery, near New Orleans, was briefing a delegation from the company's San Antonio headquarters--including CEO Bill Greehey--on how the plant and its 50-man "ride-out" crew had fared during Hurricane Katrina.

"Excuse me a minute," he mumbled, wiping his eyes as he stepped out of the conference room. For Greehey, who'd flown into New Orleans that day--getting special permission to use the closed airport--it was a moment both devastating and reassuring. That Stuart, an old refining pro from South Africa who had emigrated to the U.S. in 1983, would show so much emotion underscored just how heavy a toll Katrina had taken o
