Over the last few weeks a number of large oil firms have been announcing enormous profits over the last quarter, with large percentile profit increases due to the rise in oil prices.
These oil firms are raking it in, while the consumers of these products (us!) are having to pay increased prices for petrol. My local Esso (which I’ve complained about before) is currently suggesting I pay 95.9p a litre for unleaded. Fuck that! I go to the Sainsbury’s petrol station which is only 200 yards away from the Esso and pay “only” 86.9p.
These big oil companies are making massive profits and we get to pay over the odds to fuel our cars. Fine, it’s good business I suppose, make hay while the sun shines and all that, but screw you Esso, Shell and Texaco. I won’t be buying fuel from you while you’re insisting on raping the consumer with your inflated prices.
*takes deep breath*
I feel better now.
