I can't wait to see all the liberal loons that will soon be posting on this board about the EVIL oil companies or speculators!

Profit was 8%. Also keep in mind that $7.4 billion was paid in taxes. In addition,$1.4 Billion paid a dividends and that money will be taxed AGAIN! These dividends also help pay for the retirements of over a million Americans. ON TOP OF THAT, SHELL SPENT $4 BILLION getting ready to drill in ALaska this summer and the EPA stopped them, so they LOST $4billion that is NOT INCLUDED in the numbers given.

That in mind....the LOONS will be SILENT about GE who paid NO TAXES, Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc....

COME ON DemocRATs....
