This is sweet! A DUmmy asks a thoughful question, shows some independent thought.

4. but how much of that is % and how much is volume?
the company i work for makes MUCH higher margins than the oil companies do...are we making windfall profits? they DO have the most utilized product on the planet...could it be that they are not gouging us and it is volume that is to blame for those numbers?
i am all for doing away with their $17billion in tax breaks...but windfall profits is an awfully vague term...
sPThanks to SarasotaRepub for your help! :D
