Some people like high gas prices

I found this at hughesforamerica. There is nothing I could possibly add to it
"We're all in this together.
"That's what now-retired Exxon CEO Lee Raymond said last year when testifying before Congress about exploding gas prices. Think Progress, however, begs to differ:
Last year, Raymond made due with "a total compensation package" of just $69.7 million or $190,915 a day, including weekends.
After his haul in 2005, Raymond has decided to retire. It's seems that, for Raymond, not working is even more lucrative than working:
Exxon is giving Lee Raymond one of the most generous retirement packages in history, nearly $400 million, including pension, stock options and other perks, such as a $1 million consulting deal, two years of home security, personal security, a car and driver, and use of a corporate jet for professional purposes.Think about that the next time you shell out nearly $40 - or far more - to fill your tank.
