I’m confused. Do you think the “fuel companies” aren’t subject to the market, government regulations, supply and demand of equipment and availability of employees? Or do you think they’re just stickin it to us because they’re rich evil billionaires?

maybe next time the auto corps get into trouble the oil boys can bail them out.......since that is the major reason we even need this shit. we could have been free of this crap 50 yrs ago, but the $ keeps oil at the top of the heap with no motivation to move away from such a lucrative set your own price club.

Why weren't they "stickin it to us" four, three or even two years ago?

I'm genuinely curious, if this is how you feel about big oil, and I don't disagree, why do you still continue to buy stuff via Amazon? Is it the convenience, or is there some reasoning that Amazon is a good guy when it comes to huge corporations, or something else?

I can't stand Amazon, and I don't understand why so many continue to purchase things from them. Seems the majority of items are just garbage quality, with 50 different versions of said garbage. The lack of accountability is the other big thing, I could go buy 10 pairs of mitutoyo digimatic calipers from Amazon, and I would honestly be surprised if at least one of them was a genuine mitutoyo.

If it bothers you so much, don't buy gas from them. With all the alternatives out there now, it's easier then it has ever been.

Owning a Jeep might be one of the worst things to own. I bet you bought the CEO a 6th home with what you spend in gas. 😀

Joe Biden and the left's push to leave oil in the ground is the reason for high gas prices. When Biden tries to solve it with more threats, profit taxes, price caps, and handouts; he will make it worse and you'll likely see shortages rather than high prices.

In the mean time, Exxon stock isn't dropping like all the others. So your investment should be safe. Likely your 401k hedged using them.

I'd like to see the same outrage pointed toward the pharmaceutical companies that dwarf those numbers.

Net profit for Exxon of 6.27% would get me fired at my job. Almost 31% at Pfizer is better.

I wouldn't personally get fired, but there would be frantic executives trying to figure out what the hell happened after a quarter of that. And we're a private, locally owned manufacturer that employs about 400 and did about $80M in total revenue in 2021. Not exactly the big evil corporation.

Many companies barely made it through the lockdowns. So it makes sense they are recovering and paying out to shareholders.

It also makes sense not to spend a dime on bringing new production online, because the politicians and people are doing everything to kill the industry completely.

It's why oil companies are investing in renewable energy. They are energy companies and follow the money.

BP will reduce their oil production by 40% within the decade.

Royal Dutch Shell by 1-2% a year.

What we are seeing is the result of the New Green Deal being forced on the world.

Why shouldn't they stick it to us? Every single time the Dems get in power, they shove a climate based agenda down our throats with unrealistic unreachable goals with non flexible deadlines all based on fucking over big oil and gas as hard as they possibly can. They close down pipelines, increase our reliance on foreign oil when we have more than enough here to take care of us for as long as it takes to move over to renewables. They haven't allowed any new increases in refinery capacity, they outlaw gas engines at a fucking prodigious rate, they increase MPG at the corporate auto maker levels, they continually reduce emissions standards all of which drive up costs to the end user.

Then they lie about all the problems they cause, blame everyone and everything except the actual problem which is their unrealistic agenda. They lie about the windfall profit for Exxon for example. Sure they are making money now but who stepped in and covered their 20+ billion losses for the last few years? No one talks about that part.

Even if they do manage to browbeat the oil companies into helping them lower prices for the short term, just exactly how long will it be before they are right back fucking the oil companies harder than they are now? The oil companies see the handwriting on the wall, no one is going to help them so fuck it, make the money while you can and I for one applaud them for every cent of profit they take. You don't continually fuck over someone at every single turn at every aspect of what they do and how they do it and then beg them for help. That makes you a supreme hypocritical fucktard.

they did the same thing then.

just a dumb manufacturing worker, boss.
thank you for droppin by and adding your commentary. i wish you had used your space for an intelligent, articulate, fact driven opinion and maybe swayed a silly old fool.

now i may be off here, but you'll fix my dumb ass, right? futures? they toss out a # they'll they think they'll find profitable in 6 months and we start paying for it now............that's how it goes no?

why do you still continue to buy stuff via Amazon?

we are all kinda stuck in this boat now........ mom and pop are gone. i do try and deal locally 1st (Summit, Eastwood), then small batch vendors for other products ( like Savvy or Currie, AtoZ and Kecks). but to be honest 100% of not much is all made here, things claiming to be U.S. made are chock full of overseas parts.
Amazon is the new dept. store, they have it all in 1 spot. i do shop them, but for items i cannot readily find locally. or locally they are considerably more expensive. no day to day items either, just stuff i can't get around here quicker.

what's much harder to sometimes figure out is some products are clearly a name of a well known U.S. based co. but who's since bought and now operates it. can't spend your life doin searches..
