No wonder I feel poor

From today's New York Times....

Exxon-Mobil  reported Friday that it beat its own record for the highest profits ever recorded by any company, with net income rising 3 percent to $40.6 billion, thanks to surging oil prices. The company’s sales, more than $404 billion, exceeded the gross domestic product of 120 countries.

Exxon Mobil earned more than $1,287 of profit for every second of 2007

Brings a whole new meaning to highway robbery, as I'm payinig $3.30 a gallon, and that's the cheap stuff, that I have to pump myself. 

Gnashes teeth.....
