You tell 'em!  There's nothing more despicable than a for-profit
corporation that makes money.  Reprehensible!  I've bought my last

He's not talking about simply making a profit. He's talking about gouging
the public.
It is, in fact, reprehensible.

Well, yes, I'd certainly agree that it's reprehensible for those who
find capitalism reprehensible.  Oh to be able to pinpoint that exact
spot where simply making a profit turns into gouging the public.

Oh, where did "gouging the public" show up in his posting?  Try again,

   Gouging.

   Interesting.

   Gouging usually implies higher than market prices.  Around here,
Lake County, Illinois, Mobil has lower prices than Amoco.
Competitive, here,  even with cut rate outfits like Clark.

   Not to suggest that prices haven't risen, lately.

   But gouging....not quite.

Well, if that's your sense of corporate ethics, don't forget to buy stock in
Halliburton. But, wait, Bush is making them return some of the profits they
made for selling gas at $2.80 a gallon in Baghdad. So, even the mighty "Shrub"
recognizes that there is indeed a line where profits become gouging, right?

At least from the political perspective of an upcoming election...

Not at all.

They have more stations than other brands, and they sell more gas.

If they're selling more product, you'd expect them to make more profit.

Around here, Mobil gas is priced about the same as other brands
- in some cases they're less.

If they're somehow able to make more profit per gallon while maintaining
competitive prices they should be congratulated for their efficiency.

$2.80? Better check your facts. Halliburton's KBR subsidiary charged the Army
between $1.62 and $1.70 per gallon. While the average price in the Middle East
is/was around $.71 per gallon, Halliburton charged that price for 'guaranteed'
delivery. Not to bad considering the logistics of doing so in a war zone.

Could you do better? No? I thought not.

You're all living in cardrivers heaven....
In europe gasoline 91 octane sells for about US$ 5(!) per gallon. That
is a bit more than 1EUR per litre. At laest it is a want from politics
as there is at least 2/3 of taxes in that selling price. And too bad
they want to go up to 2.50EUR per litre(!) in the next few years :-(((
So 1(!) gallon will cost about US$ 9.50 in near future.....
reminder: 1 gallon is 3.8litre
