Exxon/Mobil, the world's largest oil company, just posted record profits of $8.3 billion for the fourth quarter of 2008 and $45 billion for all of 2008, and it has not participated in distributing discounted oil to Citizens Energy Corporation.
Isn't it amazing that Joe Kennedy II, CEO of Citizens Energy Corporation, has to rely on Hugo Chavez of Venezuela through Citgo Petroleum, a Venezuelan company, to provide discounted heating oil to Citizens Energy. This oil is then distributed in a number of states to needy homeowners to heat their homes in the winter time. States that participate include all the New England states, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Alaska.
Exxon/Mobil should stop being a scrooge and give back some of its massive wealth through the distribution of discounted oil to homeowners who cannot afford to purchase heating oil at the regular price.
