You should complain that much about taxes. Especially New York State taxes and the unions that cause them to be so high.

At least the oil companies are producing something useful and working for the money they make.

Oil companies provide jobs for thousands and thousands of Americans. Do you? Maybe it's time to educate yourself on who exactly is the enemy. You have to look no further than the people in Washington.

Blaming oil companies is what people do when they want to sound smart. Emphasis on the word "sound".

How's that rock you've been sleeping under for the last 20 years? Every holiday, every summer the price goes up. They make excuses and not one of your elected officials does a G0D DARN thing. Why? Would you cut your throat defending the public or hold your hand out for "funding" for your campaigning? Just fill up and take it in the pipe.

Yes I'm sure it is Lisa. I'm sure we are all very impressed by someone who scream "the oil companies are the devil!!" Takes a lot of intelligence to say something like that. Lots of research went into your statement I'm sure. Hahahahaha.

Actual facts!!

According to their earnings reports released today, the big five oil companies—BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, and Shell—earned a combined $30.2 billion during the first quarter of 2013, or $331 million per day. Cumulatively, Big Oil profits were 6 percent lower than the first quarter of 2012 due to lower gasoline and oil prices, but these companies still earned a combined $229,832 every minute from January through March. This is more than what 95 percent of American households earn in an entire year.

In case you guys can't comprehend, even when their profits are only 6 percent lower, they still make about 230,000 dollars every minute!! That's two hundred thirty thousand dollars a minute, in case you can't comprehend high numbers.

I blame George W. Bush because everything is his fault.

Just ask the current administration because they would never lie about anything ever.

You do realize that those privately owned oil companies have an average profit margin of only 6.5%, right? That translates into roughly 9 cents per gallon. A trivial amount considering the amount of work and investment that goes into manufacturing a gallon of gasoline.

In comparison, New York residents pay 69 cents a gallon in taxes, including the Federal 18.4 cent tax.

And State and Federal governments make multiples of that every minute from gasoline taxes.

What's your point, exactly?

New York state makes more off a gallon of gas than the oil companies make per gallon, do your homework honey and stop demonizing success, our govnt. are bigger crooks than any oil company.

Lisa are you kidding. This is basic supply and demand and basic economics. Also with 60 or so different blends of gasoline in the country and fewer refineries, the odds are stacked against us.The different blends can not be sold in different states.
One blend would immediately lower the price. Oil companies are like the state and federal govt, they each get a percentage of the cost of gas and the higher the cost to the consumer the more they make.

I wasn't going to reply anymore because of the diminutive comprehension displayed by you guys, and the treat a little girl is out smarting you. The simple fact is, oil company's are profiting close to $4,000 per second to break it down even further. But according to you guys, that's not corporate greed.

And both State and Federal government is reaping a tax benefit 2X to 5X that. Every second.

Please, tell me more about "greed".
