What do you think about Exxon Mobile’s record $40 billion profit?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 2, 2008
“I think that’s just obscene. I guess I want to know how they can post record earnings and not be held accountable, while the rest of us are being gouged at the gas pump.”
“I think it’s unfair to keep raising prices when they are making money like that. I don’t think they’re hurting for money; they could give us a break.”
“It wouldn’t bother me if I thought that money was going to benefit people by making more jobs or helping out one of their average employees, but I don’t think that’s the case. I think it’s going to line pockets higher up the chain.”
“It makes me feel like the oil companies and our government are cheating us. They’re exploiting everyone involved, and I don’t want to be the one paying for them to be able to do it.”
