Believe it or not, there are areas within the oil patch that actually profit from low oil prices.
What? That's crazy! Investors thought the whole world would crumble if oil goes lower, right? Well, that's apparently not the case, as Jim Cramer explained.
Not only does money saved at the pump translate as a benefit to the consumer's pocket, it also is good for an oil refiner such as Marathon Petroleum.
Cramer sat down with Marathon Petroleum Corp CEO Gary Heminger to get his take on what low oil prices could mean for the market and the consumer.
"When I look at what's happening on a same-store basis through our retail chains, we are up 1 percent on same-store basis since gasoline prices started coming below $3," Heminger said. This coincides with Cramer's thesis that oil could be bottoming because there is demand.
Marathon continues to reap the benefits of low oil, as shown when they reported a 13-cent earnings beat from a $2.28 basis.
