Supporting Oil Companies Huge Profits

Posted by: Tue, Apr 22, 2008

As I did my daily errands today I about ran into the car in front of me while checking the gas price. We all knew it was coming the news stations have been talking that $5 a gallon mark, but come on over 25 cents in one day! Are you kidding me? Yeah I was the idiot that did not get gas yesterday because I thought I could stretch it one more day and look what it got me. Yesterday $3.43 today $3.69 and that’s the cheap gas! Having a husband that commutes over a 100 miles a day makes my stomach turn every time that price rises.

So I wanted to vent about what everyone is venting about the damn price of gas. Yeah it’s the same gas the stations had in the tanks yesterday, but today we are just lining the pockets of the oil companies. Even my daughter called complaining saying it isn’t even worth driving 15 miles to her job to work 3 hours for minimum wage…..I have to say for once I see her point.

Then my sister sent me a ton of hilarious pictures in an email entitled gas humor. I am posting them just to give everyone a smile. Although every time you fill up remember that the oil companies made record breaking profits last quarter and we just keep getting more broke.

    OMG I hear where you’re coming from!

    The gas prices are seriously retarded! I drive a Volvo and it’s 80 canadian dollars to fill up the tank!

    Funny rant post, but you are misinformed. The oil companies aren’t taking huge profit off of this. They are making the same amount that they have been. The only companies making money are drillers and the like, which is NOT where you buy your gas.

    Thanks for the comment Jim, but from what I have read the oil companies are making record profits as of last quarter.

    I understand that oil companies are having to pays high prices too, but they are still making large amounts of money in one form or another. The working people in this world are going deeper in debt by the minute with the rising fuel prices that literally affect everything we buy.

    I agree with bbrian017 that is shocking to fill the tank when you go to the gas pump and there has been talk about hit $5 a gallon this summer. My husband drives a small four cylinder car over a hundred miles a day to work and back, it is hitting us hard.

    I do not know what is your problem. We have to pay two dollars for one litre of gas, that is more than 7 dollars of one stupid gallon of gas!
    And we here it is worst… The more than half of it is only the tax. Now, when the dollar is so cheap, the us rises the prices, to compensate it. But our oil company do not keep the prices on the same level, because the price of oil is rising, they have to rise the prices too. As the dollar would be on the same level…
