I don’t think there is any intended subtrefuge labeling it a gasoline producing unit.  Most of the initial news articles are often done by local / area reporters that don’t have a lot depth on Refinery process or what the units do within it, and so passing on area impacted for general information is more important at the time.
 
Additionally most of the designated refinery spokesmen are going to be very cautious on initial statements and be guided by management & legal on what to say to limit legal exposure of the company.
 
The followup articles often have details about the accidents, units, people and events once everyone has clear picture of what is going on – not when event is fresh & trying shoot from the hip with limited data.
Hope this helps
