In a Good Mood

That’s what oil companies must be in. Just look! Oil prices were over $140 a barrel as recently as July, and as I write prices are down to $64 per barrel.

Why doesn’t Congress haul the energy company CEOs to demand an explanation for their newfound altruism? Or heck, if they are doing this to make a buck, why don’t we haul them before Congress to demand an “excess profits” tax when prices are plummeting? Clearly, the energy companies are being 54% more generous to Americans today than they were in July … how nice of them.

    Gas prices are WAY down in the last few weeks. What happened, did ‘big oil’ have an epiphany in the last month and all of a sudden decide to become less ‘greedy?!’ 😉 [/saracasm]

    You’re right – they must have had an epiphany to become so altruistic so soon!
