All I can say is WTF!
This is an outrage!
"DALLAS (AP) - Oil industry behemoth Exxon Mobil's earnings rose to $10.49 billion in the third quarter, the second-largest quarterly profit ever
recorded by a publicly traded U.S. company. Its shares briefly rose to a 52-week high.
The report Thursday comes as high crude prices this year have fueled record profits in the oil industry, triggering an outcry from consumers who were
being asked to pay about $3 a gallon for gasoline in early August."
