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?
