I hadn't even used HALF a tank of gas on my car..it was still a bit above the half mark when I decided to fill it up...and it cost $27 damn dollars!!!!!!! WTF?? That's a rip off I'm tellin ya! I can remember when it would have cost $20 to fill up from EMPTY..not almost half.


OPEC keeps getting richer....and my wallet sure as hell is losing weight a helluva lot quicker than I am!

Ok...just wanted to rant a little...go back to your play.

The news last year reported that the gas companies reported a 200 millon dollar profit. If they are making that kind of money why is gas SO FUCKING HIGH ! ! ! !

the more return on their investment the shareholders see
the more likely they are able to afford the gas they've invested in
200 mil seems pretty low - that must have been for the month of

Be Thankfull You Don't Drive A SUV....Takes Me 40+ To Fill A 12gal Tank. IT's Funny That The Oil Companies Are Always Complaining About Making Higher Profits....Where Is The Money Going?

Don't feel bad; it costs me $80 to fill mine up and I get roughly 15 mpg in the city.

200 billion seems right

Exactly DB....and that's why I doubt we will ever see the prices go down.

Also the dollar isn't worth what it used to be, so that is not helping. What about the production of oil in Iraq, crank it up! Cheney said that is going to pay for part of the war. They are not saying anything about that.

It's not just OPEC that's getting richer. Here are three oil companys and their 2007 oil PROFITs, not sales. Not that all of these are billion with a B and not a M.

Exxon $39.5 Billion

Shell $40.6 Billion

Chevron $17.14

You're right Swyter...it isn't just OPEC....it's all of them.

Hey Swyeter! Good to see another Viking on here man! You're right. the oil companies are getting rich too and the middle class is disappearing! This country is about to be a whole different place to live!

I call it consensual rape. I think it's going to get much, much worse. Dave2 is right, America will be unrecognizable before long. The middle class will be reduced greatly and it's going to be rich or poor. And nobody's doing shit about it. Americans have become the most misinformed and convoluted country on earth.

Anybody know the latest on Paris? How about Brad and Angelina?

Who cares about gas prices when Brittany is having a crisis?

they want us to buy toyota... and deal with going really slow but using less gas...

what happened to when all these gas prices should have had a cap on them... rather then send us a check to help with gas and misc things... put a cap on how high gas prices can go.. because at this rate within another 10 years we will be like $10 a gallon and exxon could buy china outright

Oil will be the hot button topic by November. I already predicted that.


Oil companies want tax dollars to build refineries btw how do you guys feel about that?

If you bother to look at the sales figures as well instead of just the profits you will see that the oil companies are making around 10% profits on average. The way I look at it......if I have a business that isn't making a 10% profit I'm gonna find a new business.

With all the focus on alternative fuels an oil company has little incentive to invest in a new refinery. With all the red tape and environmental issues it would take more than a decade to complete........and could very well be obsolete upon completion.

Wal-Mart makes 3.2-3.6% profit. It is all about quantity. The small business owner cannot make such a mere amount. However, a large corporation can and normally does make much less than 10% profit.
