I gives me great concern that people have suggested that the oil companies give up a portion of their profits to overcome a short issue that in the long run of supply and demand will unravel the secret code to the future expense of gasoline. Which by the way none of of have any control over!! Here is the issue most people do not see because of ignorant bliss. Capitalism is our way of life, where everyone fights for the next raise, the better position, more money etc... and great companies don't just own a single entity in the market place. This leads to the uncovered issue that one or more of the other businesses is probably suffering losses due to the current state of clusterF that is going on from the most recent disaster. In my belief, these companies are the ones have put in the million of dollars and man hours to find a way to make this money and life, and one of the most selfish things we can ask them to do is to give up what they have died for in the past. Think further outside the box, most of us can more easily give up a percentage of our other spending habits than to ask a group of deserving multibillion dollar egomaniacs to give up some of theirs.
