The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which energy editor/analyst Joel South and consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics across the investing world.
In this edition, Joel and Austin discuss a bold move taking place in the airline industry. Delta Airlines is exiting the volatile jet fuel market and entering into a complex refining venture, in which it will now deal with the volatile crude market and the razor-thin refining market. Joel will discuss the finances of the deal and determine whether Delta can create a synergy between jet fuel refining and consumption. Will this move pay off and significantly save on Delta's fuel bill or will the company find the margins too thin and have to close down the operation? Will this move help Delta separate itself from the competition through being a low-cost producer? Watch and find out.
