These gas/oil companies make me sick. $4.00/gal and more than 8M in salary and bonus. I wish I didn't need to drive my car and I wish the damn government would step and and put caps on them and take over. Something has to be done......Soon people will be working to put gas in the cars and food on their tables only.

I don't understand how he can earn $8.57 million and yet they can't pass on any savings to the consumer.

Will be looking at $4.00/gal soon and keeping Mr.Drosdick and Co. in the lifestyle they have grown accustomed to.

Yes Fred, I would still care about the average person. See, I am an average person, so If I was forutnate enough to earn that salary, hit a lottery etc. and ended up with millinons, knowing what is is to WANT I would not forget about the average person......

This country needs some leaders that are born again, God
fearing christians in office. Not religious people. Only then will this type of corruption stop.

What is wrong with this country. We will pay astronomical prices for everything and do nothing to stop it. But let these high executives make these kind of salaries/bonuses. No wonder this country is in the poor house. We have higher ups gouging the american people. We need to do something. Even if we boycott something.

"have struggled to pass on the cost of its finished products, such as gasoline, to customers."
They must be struggling to figure out WHICH of the millions to pass down to the customers.
These people should be ashamed of themselves. I stopped purchasing Exxon and Mobile awhile ago - maybe Sunoco is next!

Why complain? I see more and more SUV's and huge pickup trucks on the road everyday. I see folks running into convenience stores and leave their vehicles running for almost 5 minutes at a time. I see folks doing 80-90 mph along highways like its the normal driving speed. Folks DEMAND cars be able to do 100+mph and DEMAND they do 0-60 in 5 seconds or less AND still want the same car to get 40+ mpg. So stop whining and suck it up.

This is a disgrace that any person should receive that much compensation when there are people in the USA that are starving and children who don't have health insurance. Of course we the consumers are paying his salary by supporting Sunoco. Everyone should boycot buying Sunoco products.

Perhaps the executives should consider a cut in salary and benefits as the average workers are doing.
