Chevron posts record profit

SF Gate -- Chevron said Friday that its fourth-quarter profit increased 41 percent to a record $7.25 billion ($3.70 per share) as it reported stronger refining results and a gain from an Australian natural gas field swap.

That was up from $5.12 billion ($2.58) a year earlier, the San Ramon company said. Analysts had predicted a profit of $3.06 per share. Sales fell 3 percent to $56.3 billion.

Chevron shares rose just over 1 percent to $116.50 Friday.

Chevron's refining segment returned to profit from a loss a year earlier as rising supplies from U.S. shale formations lowered crude input costs and processing margins climbed 46 percent. Chevron also benefited as crude prices rose in international energy markets. About 75 percent of the company's crude is pumped from non-U.S. wells.

Billions and billions in profit every quarter and all we hear about is how hard it is to make a profit in the oil business. Meanwhile average, everyday people are starving or are simply scraping by by the skin of their teeth and seeing their taxes shoot up to pay for the rest of the poor. I wonder how much of this profit will be going to pay for Obamacare and to fund the Social Security shortfall.

Answer is: approximately none.

I am not at all surprised Chevron made a record profit. After all the oil industry has been gouging us at the pump for many years.

No surprise but since our government don't do anything against speculators, oil will increase and their pockets will be full of our money.

these companies get fined up the #(%&(#@ to the tune of millions and billions in the case of bp. They just tack fines on to the price of oil and continue with record profits.

I pray for the day that our politicians get smart and start regulating this monopolistic industry.

Everybody hates a company when they make a profit but they also hate them when they lose money, go broke and close for business because that causes unemployment to rise and deprives “me” of products.
