Bigger and bigger profits

In the U.S., the heads of the big oil corporations are explaining to Congress why it's okay for them to make record profits and ask the government for billions more dollars in tax credits, while consumers feel serious pains in the pocket when it comes to buying fuel.

It's just not logical, is it? Record freaking profits. No benefit passed to the consumer. And they want subsidies from the government which gets tax monies from ordinary citizens.

It's completely easy to sympathize and support the Independent Truckers Association when they want to go on strike what with the rising costs of diesel. Impossible to feel anything but loathing for these oil execs and their crazy demands. Record profits. Wasn't the U.S. a free-market nation? Then let them go about their business.
