English term or phrase: light-product
This appeared in Mobil oil company's strategic objectives.

Continue to lower supply aquisition and transportation costs to reduce light-produts laid-down cost, such that we strive to supply produts to our terminals at a cost equal to or better than the competitive market maker.

What are included in "light-product"? Does it include gasoline and light oil, or other type of oil? Is is equivalent to "white oil"?

Explanation:
I assume light-product includes all light product oil such as gasoline, parafine/kerosene, and white oil..etc.

I found the following site that indicates "a industry word" in use for gasolin, parafine oil, and white oil. Hope that helps. Good luck.

Thank you. Although I did not use the suggested term, your information was helpful.

役に立つ情報をありがとうございました。ただ、和訳文では、文脈的にこの用語は使いにくかった(注釈などが必要になりそうだった)ので、造語のようで変ですが、軽製品としました。これならなんとか読者が察してくれるだろう、という妥協ですが。
