Now? It goes to an oil company that for yet again set record profits.

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.
