If Exxon Mobile can survive and be as big as it is on $.07 profit, why is government broke when they collect $.48 per gal PLUS all the other taxes that are in many cases on average a greater percentage as the tax/cost on gasoline?

Government's response: This is proof that we need more than $.48 per gallon.
