Agreed about the profits, but the whole thing is dirty to me. It's not like gas is a luxury. If prices were absurdly high for a luxury item or thing that really isn't needed and people continued to pay those crazy prices (Starbucks anyone?), then more power to them. But for something people don't have a choice on buying? Meh, just not right in my opinion to rob everyone simply because "they can" and there's no one to stop them.
It's exactly why people gripe and moan about the gas prices. I'm one of them. I gripe all the time that gas prices are artifically inflated, and when someone like Exxon is banking record profits (not record net income, record profits!) quarter after quarter after quarter, it only proves the point. I'd push my car if my only choices were to fill up at Exxon or push the car home.
