of course were taxed, for ever dollar we make we give away roughly 20 cents of it. then there is sales tax, on every none food item we pay anything from 6-10% on that depending on where you live.
also, prices are going to skyrocket, were buying crude oil for 96$ a barrel right now, the gas were pumping right now was probably 60-70$ a barrel.
i wish i could buy crude oil and refine it myself, you get lots of other products too, kerosene, diesel, jet fuel, gasoline, propane, etc. all for just a bit over 1$ a gallon for the stuff, dont know how much gasoline you get out of crude oil however. barrel's are 55 gallons BTW.
ohhh your taxed on your oil, in our state were taxed like 3 or 4 cents per gallon, isnt much but it makes several million dollars for our state
