ExxonMobile may become the world’s largest company, surpassing GE

Not a bit of a correlation between this and our ultrahigh gas prices, right?

Oh, wait, maybe:

High energy prices are bad news for the global economy, but they’ve generated windfall profits for Exxon. In the first quarter, the Irving, Texas, company reported record earnings of $5 billion, putting it on track to surpass last year’s record profit of $21.5 billion.

Isn’t this why we invaded Iraq? No, I mean, really… we’re not still buying this “democracy” crap are we?
