A Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) employee works at Receiving Station-E in North Hollywood, California, September 12, 2005. Motor fuels prices in West Coast refined products markets jumped on Monday after three Los Angeles-area refineries were hit by a power outage that struck broad areas in Los Angeles. An employee had erroneously cut a cable that led to an energy blackout, which began shortly after noon and lasted about two hours, affected approximately 1.5 million LADWP customers, in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
