That's right. ExxonMobil made a total profit in 2010 of 2 cents on every gallon of gasoline sold in the United States. Now...who wants to guess how much money the US Government/State Government/ Local Government made on each gallon of gasoline sold?ExxonMobil’s earnings are from operations in more than 100 countries around the world. The part of the business that refines and sells gasoline and diesel in the United States represents less than 3 percent – or 3 cents on the dollar – of our total earnings. For every gallon of gasoline, diesel or finished products we manufactured and sold in theUnited States in the last three months of 2010, we earned a little more than 2 cents per gallon. That’s not a typo. Two cents.
