Exxon – Making a Ridiculous Amount of Money

July 31, 2008

In these hard economic times, I often find myself pained at the thought of my expenses.  Gas prices have risen to an all-time high, global warming has me running the A/C more, and guacamole went up 20 cents at Chipotle. I frequently ask myself, “How can I make a ridiculous amount of money, in not much time at all?” Well friends, after much searching, I have found the solution:  BE EXXON MOBIL.

Exxon Mobil just reported their profits today, and once again, have set an all-time record for the largest quartely profit in US history.  Exxon Mobil made $11.68 billion in the second quarter.  That is a lot of money. That works out to be $1,485.55 every second.

Am I the only one that thinks it’s a bit strange that while I’m shelling out 75 bucks for a tank of gas, Exxon Mobil is setting records for most quarterly profit in US history?

Wow. A very interesting view on the focus of our presidential candidates, but more so, on very tangible issues plaguing the daily lives of our citizens (aka=gas prices?). Worth a view:
