Remember, the tax that the government earns on it exceeds the oil companies margin and the government produces nothing but misery.
Yes, I acknowledge that the government gets roughly 35 cents per gallon (all profit), and the oil company gets less than 10 cents per gallon as profit; I also realize that for the 5th or 6th year in a row the oil companies have recorded “record heretofore unseen profits” while my living conditions have dropped.
I’m not opposed to the oil companies making profits; heck, that’s capitalism. I’m opposed to oil companies (or anyone, really) making OBSCENE profits at the expense of everyone. I acknowledge it will happen, because “the love of money is the root of all evil”. Just wish it wasn’t so.
