    Big Oil Profits UP Dramatically

    Chevron profits up from $235 million to $5 billion!  

    Oil companies made $174 billion  in profits in 2021.

    that oil should go up because there are storms, fires , hurricanes, floods,... even though these are often worsened or caused by burning fossil fuels.

    we might have a war; even though weapons profiteers are pushing PR  chorus to create fear and demand for more weapons;

    that we need fracking to avoid  shortages; even though oil companies intend to export much of the fracked oil and gas;

    and that we should ignore their bonuses, stock buybacks, and their refusal to invest in wind, solar, batteries, and efficiency.

They buy out their competitors and restrict competition, then they raise prices. They get bailouts, government contracts, PPP loans, favorable court rulings, etc.....  article
