Remember This When You Fill Up

While gas prices are high and oil companies are wailing about supply issues and Katrina and war in the middle east…Exxon Mobil has just reported a quarterly profit of $10.71 billion.  That’s not revenue, that’s profit.
 
And to put it in perspective — it’s the highest quarterly profit ever reported by any publicly-held U.S. company.  Ever.  Not just the highest profit for Exxon Mobil, the highest profit any public U.S. company has ever reported.
 
More than Microsoft.  More than Wal-Mart.
 
Are we being gouged at the pumps?  You be the judge.
