Did you know that Gas Stations only make around 5 cents per gallon?
(most of their capital gains come from Soda Pop and snacks)
so where does all that gas money go?
to Exon and other large oil companys?
You would THINK so, but actually, their cut is around a mere10 cents.
the truth is that the money is soooo dispersed among many different entities. the drilling, the transportation, the refineries, the middle-men....
everyone who's anyone is taking a cut.
not to MENTION the fact that the federal government takes almost 50% of any would-be profit.
We obviously need to move beyond dependency on fossil fuels. but as for now....
to many people ....too many companys... have their hands in the cookie jar, and even though WE as a society *think* we want fuel alternatives, a great percentage of us depend on it's revenue.
What are your views on the high prices of gasoline?
