It's dipped below $2.00 in parts of OK...a little more to go still.

And daisound wins the award for best misinterpretation of the english language.

AMERICA'S MONEY CRISIS
More pain: Economy shrinks
Exxon Mobil: Biggest profit in U.S. history
Fair-value accounting: Here to stay
Stocks set to rally
Asian shares soar on rate cuts

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Exxon Mobil Corp. set a quarterly profit record for a U.S. company Thursday, surging past analyst estimates.

Exxon Mobil (XOM, Fortune 500), the leading U.S. oil company, said its third-quarter net profit was $14.83 billion, or $2.86 per share, up from $9.41 billion, or $1.70, a year earlier. That profit included $1.45 billion in special items.

Exxon's prior record was $11.68 billion in the second quarter of 2008.

The company said its revenue totaled $137.7 billion in the third quarter.

Analysts had expected Exxon to report a 40% jump in earnings to $2.38 per share, or net income of $12.2 billion, and a 28% surge in revenues to $131.13 billion, according to a consensus of estimates compiled by Thomson FirstCall.

The company's earnings were buoyed by oil prices, which reached record highs in the quarter before declining. Oil prices were trading at $140.97 a barrel at the beginning of the third quarter, and had fallen to $100.64 at the end.

Compare that to 2007, when prices traded at $71.09 a barrel at the beginning of the third quarter, and rose to $81.66 by the end.

Exxon's special charges include the gain of $1.62 billion from the sale of a German natural gas company. It also includes the $170 million charge in interest related to punitive damages from the Valdez oil spill off the Alaskan coast in 1989.

The company said it lost $50 million, before taxes, in oil revenues because of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. The company expects damages related to these hurricanes to reduce fourth-quarter earnings by $500 million.

Earlier Thursday, Europe's leading oil company, Royal Dutch Shell PLC (RDSA), reported a 22% gain in net profit for the third quarter, to $8.45 billion. The company said sales rose 45% to $132 billion.

Exxon is the second-largest company in the Fortune 500 in terms of annual sales, behind Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500)
Any more questions, wise ass?


And to think, there's a candidate who thinks these poor sons of bitches are so bad off, that they need MORE tax breaks. I'll give you a hint - it's the guy whose face looks like a corpse.

Let's see if Exxon's mood is still the same in the 4th quarter....They'll probably ask for a bail out! Cut production thus raising the demand for less quanity...Maybe they'll even blowup 1 or two MFG plants to make it look like trouble. With all that money each company should have built more plants to process the fuel so their current plants aren't running at the 100% mark 24 hours a day....

There's a couple of Gastation size 12,000 gallon tanks available here with double sided pumps....One for diesel and the other for gas. Do you think I should bury them in the back yard and fill them up....? LOL!

I am sure the Prof has seen this in his travel but I doubt much of the rest of you have, this is more for motorcycles and people haulers but as well for cars getting caught short, it serves the local area. Interesting for a city 10 to 13 million people..........



This is an unofficial gas station. As you can see, they sell gasoline in 1 liter bottles. You’ll find this helpful, if someday your car runs out of gas. The price is slightly higher but in case of emergency, you’ll buy it.
