Oil company profits rose on average about 75% from 2010 to 2011 (can't find the 2012 numbers) Exxons profits in 2011 were $41 billion. I expect 2012 profits will be even higher.

The oil companies have millions of acres of leases they haven't explored yet and they are exporting refined gas from the US because they can get bigger profits by selling it in other countries. So refinery capacity is not an issue.

In what way should Obama interfere in the free market. Export restriction? Price controls? Caps on profits? Revoking leases that remain unexplored for more than 5 years?

Whether any or all of these actions should be explored, none can be done by executive order.

Anything done will have to start with congress, and I don't think any of these ideas (or any other idea that would harm oil company's profits) can pass in both houses.

I don't think the government should interfere in the free marketprocess I have to ask the question, Why shouldn't he, he's put his nose in everything else it doesn't belong in.
