Hurricane Sandy, the biggest Atlantic storm in history, caused at least 75 U.S. deaths and blacked out millions of homes and businesses. Six Northeast refineries with 1.17 million barrels a day of processing capacity shut or operated at reduced rates because of the storm, according to the U.S. Energy Department. With damage still being assessed, predictions pegged the economic loss from the Texas-size storm at as much as $50 billion.
