So, here's the deal...
My gas bill has gone up this year from about £20 a month to £40. The electricity has gone up to £50. Petrol is up at about 90p a litre or something now too. And in the middle of all this, Shell post record profits following on from Exxon's record last week.
What's even more impressive is that Shell said production
fell to 3.5 million barrels of oil from 3.84 million for the same period of 2004. So they produced less, but made more money! How does that work?
