DO YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT EVERYTHING ?

DON'T BOTHER TO ANSWER , IT's A RHETORICAL QUESTION THAT I ALREADY

KNOW THE ANSWER TO & YOU'LL PROBABLY JUST WHINE SOME MORE .

LIKE USUAL , YOU ARE WRONG AGAIN .

AS A MATTER OF FACT , BUY FUEL IN GERMANY ON A REGULAR BASIS .

SINCE A LOT OF THE MICROCAR PARTS THAT I IMPORT COME FROM FROM GERMANY ,

THE PRICES I HAVE TO PAY TO SHIP THOSE PARTS DO REFLECT THE PRICE OF FUEL THERE .

THEY ARE USUALLY SHIPPED WITHIN THE COUNTRY TO A FRIEND WHO

REPACKAGES THEM FOR MORE ECONOMICAL SHIPPING TO THE USA .

CAN WE HAVE A DOUBLE SHEESH ?

this is great news if you own stock in oil companies

BEFORE YOU RUN OFF TO PUT ALL YOUR MONEY IN OIL STOCK , CONSIDER THAT

THE GERMAN VAT & THE FUEL SURCHARGE TAX ADD UP TO $6.28 PER GALLON !

Germany

Fuel taxes in Germany are €0.4704 per litre for ultra-low sulphur Diesel and €0.6545 per litre for conventional unleaded petrol, plus Value Added Tax (19%) on the fuel itself and the Fuel Tax. That adds up to prices of €1.03 per litre for ultra-low sulphur Diesel and €1.22 per litre (approximately USD 6.28 per US gallon) for unleaded petrol (March 2009).

also good for the tax collector. Corporate profits receive a lot of attention, but what receives less attention are the corporate taxes paid on corporate profits.

ExxonMobil paid $8 billion in taxes in the first quarter, which is about $22 million in income taxes a day or almost $1 million each hour.

ExxonMobil spent $7.8 billion in the first quarter on capital equipment and exploration w/c is 73% of its after-tax earnings. That's more than $21 million per day.

Yes, higher oil prices played a major role in increasing Exxon's profits but the role of increased output shouldn't be ignored. And people should remember that natural gas prices in the U.S are the lowest since December 2002, in large part due to increased domestic production from companies like Exxon.

Exxon has a 42.3% effective income tax rate on its income and their average profit margin is at 6 1/2 %. I believe they pay a fair share of taxes .

I believe you are wrong. I also believe in windfall profits taxes for companies that are fleecing the American people with rampant price fixing.

who said i was going to do that? it's not advisable to put all of your money in one investment, no matter what it is - ever heard of diversification? also, the time to buy oil stocks would have been about last july...not now.
