America needs American OIl paying taxes and creating jobs and getting natural gas into economy $20 'oil'? Yea
Ironically, USA Today just published the top-10 list of companies that paid the highest U.S. income taxes as of 2012, and oil industry companies took three of the slots. Number one was Exxon Mobil XOM +0.13% at $31 billion, followed by Chevron CVX -0.24% at $20 billion, and sixth was ConocoPhillips COP -0.07% at $8 billion. That is about $60 billion in taxes among them, more than the other seven companies on the list—including Apple and Microsoft MSFT +0.16% —combined. Don't look for a presidential attack on Apple or Microsoft anytime soon.
Except 40% less co2 than corn ethanol corruption and oil.
