Shock. Shock. Shock. Gas prices are at the highest level in 7 years while Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Shell & BP made nearly $25 billion in profits last quarter – the highest level in over 7 years. The problem is not inflation. The problem is corporate greed, collusion & profiteering.

If only we could return to May 2020, when national gas prices fell to $1.93/gallon because oil companies decided they love us and didn't care about making money. Is that how pricing works? https://t.co/GzdJQHPG5N
