Wondering why gas prices are so high? It’s not Biden doing it. It’s the fuckers who oppose renewable energy with every breath. They lie to the public, hold taxes hostage, and have the audacity to demand subsidies from the federal government — and republicans keep giving them subsidies.
Poor little fucking conglomerates raping the planet, sentencing the planet’s children to starve and die, and lying about it all the way. If you want to guess who is dumping millions into stocked, remote, underground bunkers to ride out everything from nuclear war to famine, it‘s probably these guys and gals as a big part of it.
Exxon's profit, excluding special items, came to $17.6 billion in the second quarter, nearly double what it made in its very profitable first quarter as oil and gas prices started to soar in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Second-quarter profit was up 273% from the same period a year ago.
Chevron earned $11.4 billion excluding special items, up 74% from the first quarter and 247% from a year ago.
Including one-time items, both earned hundreds of millions more: ExxonMobil's net income reached $17.9 billion, while Chevron brought in $11.6 billion.
ExxonMobil's net income came to $2,245.62 every second of every day of the 92-day long quarter. On that basis, Chevron earned $1,462.11 per second.
