Gas Prices and Oil Profits

Think about this, Exxon Mobil, the company responsible for the Exxon Valdez oil spill, made a record $42 BILLION (with a "B") dollars in profit in 2004, up from $32 BILLION the year before. I believe that in 2005 they made $61 BILLION.

You know what they made in 2002, before we invaded Iraq?

$18 BILLION.

They DOUBLED their profits in the year we invaded Iraq.

And you wonder why Gas is $2.50 a gallon?
