Yet another reason to hate Big Oil...
"Imperial Oil Ltd. made more than $1 billion the final three months of last year — the highest profit the oil giant has ever made — at a time when consumers were paying nearly $1 a litre for its Esso brand of gasoline.
That profit was nearly double the company's earnings in the fourth quarter of 2004, when it made $538 million or $1.53 a share."
