: Actually unlike you, I have looked up the numbers to support my claims. Once again you fail to understand what I clearly stated as their profit "per dollar sold". At the currently national average price per gallon of $4.29, oil companies are making 24.04 cents per gallon. A far cry from your claim of 70 cents per gallon.
And further for your edification, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 1 barrel of crude oil makes about 17 gallons of gasoline, 12 gallons of gasoil, 7 gallons of jet fuel or kerosene, while lubricants, light naphtha and asphalt makes up the rest.
