New Report: Oil CEO Greed Down By Over 50% In Past Month
I'm happy to report Big Oil CEO's have really started getting nicer, all at the same time, over the last 5 weeks or so. For whatever reason, the oil companies have all gotten together and decided to be half as greedy as they were back in September. It all started at the beginning of October. You could start to see it in each CEOs' eyes: they started getting really feel-good nice and didn't feel like making as much money as before. So prices began to fall dramatically. The average gallon of gas is under $2 in many areas, thanks to less greed.
Right-wing ideologues will no doubt attempt to explain these price changes away by using annoying economics terms like "supply" and "demand." But that's just typical Republican nonsense; we all know what's really going on here. Change is in the air and even the greediest among us are starting to feel they have a social responsibility to offer "fair" prices for gasoline instead of relying on the greed tactics of the Bush years. We shouldn't rest too easy, however, because I'm told that experts are predicting greed levels to rise again in the Spring once the summer driving season picks up.
