OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Warren Buffett’s company has bought nearly 1 million more shares of oil refiner Phillips 66.

Berkshire Hathaway said in a regulatory filing that it owned 80.67 million Phillips 66 shares after the latest purchases this week.

The latest purchases made this week are worth roughly $78 million.

Besides investments, Berkshire owns about 90 subsidiaries in a variety of industries, including insurance, utilities, railroads, and manufacturing.
