The Internet is a vast sea of misinformation and poorly remembered facts,  
but this statement below, unless tongue-in-cheek, really is a topper.  It  was 
first the oil shortage, THEN the windfall profits tax.  In a curious  
arrangement that exists to today, when the source price of this commodity goes  
up, the 
oil companies use the opportunity to increase their profit margin, and  their 
profits soar while the users--that would be us--get shafted twice.

I'm with you on usury and insurance (of any type) but  oil
companies are, in my opinion, great benefactors of mankind.
And they  usually get nothing but grief from the government
(remember the "windfall  profits tax" that caused the oil
shortages of the 1970s?).
