Thats about right Jim. The government, federal and state levels are making
all the money. Glen Beck was saying in some states the taxes on a gallon of
gas were at about 69 cents per gallon. And the government wants to tax the
profits of the oil companies. Geeez.

What are Europeans paying for gasoline right now?
Around 0.90 - 0.95 UKP per litre in the UK. Mostly tax, of course.
In US units, that's around $6.50 per gallon.
Here, on the Isle of Arran, we pay ?1.095 per litre. That's ?4.97 per
UK gallon, or in US terms $7.62 per US gallon. Rip off time for the oil
I sure agree with the thought that the oil companies are ripping us off.
Further, in the US, I believe the State Dept. has caused the news media to
shut-up about any talk about excess profiting. For the past several days it
was on every news commentators lips and now everyone is either mum on the
point, or saying the the oil profits are realistic.
What I heard was the oil companies are only making around 9¢/gallon,
but the sheer volume makes that into billions.
