Yes, how many billions of dollars in profits will Exxon make this week?

When I was 4 or 5, I remember telling my mom I wanted to work at the gas station because everybody stops and gives you money...

from what I know of gas stations, they don't make real good money in many places where prices are high.

Well, yeah. :p Did I mention I was 4?

The point is: people need gas to drive their cars and they're willing to pay -- that fact is even obvious to young children.

I wouldn't have such a problem with this if I knew where all of the oil profits were GOING. The flow of money is like a current in the ocean--it circulates, going around and around to lots of different places. Could oil revenue be supporting terrorists, even unwittingly?

I would bet on it. The money given to Saudi Arabia and other nations in the Middle East is most definitely being moved around, and with the amount of terrorism today, I'm sure it gets into the hands of terrorism sooner or later...

Well we're lucky they didn't up the price to 5 Bucks and instead upped the price to 3 Bucks, but they did that to avoid taxation anyway and have minimal profits instead of no profits

I think it would do well for everyone to remember that corporations don't pay taxes, we pay taxes. Their taxes are always folded into the price of the commodity they're moving.

But we need to pay taxes! It's our civic duty, paying money to the government! Why are people so upset about giving the government money so they can use it to build roads, or provide border security, or pay for social security?

I think people have a problem with HOW the taxes have been spent as of late, and how much we have been paying out.

I have a problem with how the taxes are being spent as well as how much we've been paying out.

The entire system is ****ed.
