The simple answer is that if refineries shut down the strategic petroleum reserves (SPR) would not help. The SPR consists of crude oil - unrefined products. While the US consumes about 21.4 million barrels per day of petroleum products, those barrels are refined products: gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, etc.

does the federal reserve have complete control over the money supply at all times

However, a change in a reserve-level rate usually causes banks to change their strategic plans. In addition, a reserve-level rate increase is costly to banks. Consequently, changes in reserve-level rates are uncommon.

The federal reserve does not have complete control over money supply. The citizens also have control over the money that they manage.
