$3.00 a gallon!
By Marty West


April 21, 2006

Retiring Exxon Mobil's CEO Lee Raymond has a $400 million dollar pension package if you count all the perks (and let's do that). He has already collected $686 million in the 12 years he's been CEO - that's $144,573 a day and still Exxon made a profit of $36 billion last year. (Raymond Learsy column in Huffington Post). Maybe it's not such a wonder that gas will soon top $3.00 a gallon-wouldn't want old Lee not to have a health plan.
