Who's really gouging us on gas?

I keep hearing the same tired lament from the liberal elite. Big oil companies are gouging us on fuel. If you don't already know it, those big bad companies make an 8% profit on a gallon of gas. While it depends somewhat on which state you live in, the government is collecting about 40 cents per gallon. For those of you bad at math, let's use $4.00 as the average cost to us for said gallon of gas. The government is making 10%. The big bad company is making 32 cents per gallon. I ask you, who is gouging us????

See folks, this is what is called a soft tax. Guess who this tax hits the hardest. It sure isn't the middle and upper classes. It is the very same poor people that the liberal elite claim they are out to protect. The gas tax is just one of many such soft taxes. Think beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes, cigars, electricity, phone service, etc. I have a message for those liberal scumbag liars. It is polite to kiss somebody first before you screw them. Why the less fortunate can't see or understand how badly they are being fooked by the very politicians they support is beyond me. Is it the constant class warfare baiting the left spews????

Z, here is a good link on this subject. I never really thought about who was screwing us more. Of course the answer to that question is pretty obvious.
