Big Oil’s profits in the first quarter of this year:
Shell – $ 9,100,000,000
BP – $ 6,200,000,000
Exxon – $ 5,480,000,000
Chevron – $ 6,260,000,000

They blame Biden for high gas prices but every Republican in the House voted against a crackdown on gas price gouging. They blame Biden for the baby formula shortage but voted against funding to deal with the shortage. And they want to be put in power in November.
