Gas… lining the government pocket

I found a very interesting article today.  It’s not new information… but it’s all laid out nice and neat.

Long story short… for a gallon of gas @ $3.27 the oil companies make approximately $.08 while the government makes $.39.

The government is taking in 5X the money that the oil companies do.
