I, on the other hand, feel that I would rather pay current prices for 
foreign oil and leave our own potential untapped for future use. Why be in a 
hurry to deplete our resources when we can be busy depleting someone else's?

There is nothing wrong with making a profit, but it is significant that the 
profit in question set an all-time world record. It was mostly the result of 
CYA pricing (raising prices the moment that it looks as if there will be an 
availability problem, but not lowering prices until there is no possibility 
of loss) repeated a lot of times due to international relations getting 
stressed in so many different directions. Add to that the burgeoning energy 
markets in India and China and they hit a windfall. It happens. I would not 
mind it as much if the people who actually made the bulk of the profits ever 
actually made a significant loss, but they really are not the ones at risk.
