Exxon Drills into YOUR Wallet

We, like so many of you, have been appalled by what we've seen at gas stations and on the news in recent months. At gas pumps across the country, Americans have been watching prices climb, and their wallets shrink. That's why a couple of weeks ago, when the world's largest oil company, ExxonMobil, announced record-breaking profits, it got everyone's attention - including Congress'.

TODAY, Congress is holding hearings against Exxon and the rest of the oil industry for possible price gouging.

Take Action! Tell YOUR Senators what you think about Exxon's profits

In fact, Exxon's profits exceeded the gross domestic product of several oil producing nations, including Kuwait, Libya and Qatar. Exxon made a profit of nearly $10 BILLION this quarter, and got another windfall from Bush's $14.5 BILLION in tax breaks and incentives for the energy industry. In short, ExxonMobil has made the highest quarterly profit earnings in U.S. history, but it hasn't spent a dime on alternative energy.

At a time when the average American is unsure how to pay for increased heating costs this winter, Exxon's red-hot profits are a slap in the face. Worse yet, they're a kick in the teeth for average fisherman in Alaska, who still have not received the $5 billion dollars awarded to them by a court of law following the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989. What's Exxon's excuse?

Exxon's behavior is greedy, and it's time for Congress to put a stop to it.

Sincerely,

Chris, Nick, and the rest of the Greenpeace Energy Team
