Whoa! Profit margins of the oil companies are way down the list, something like 30th or 40th as an industry sector. The "high profits" mantra is a talking point that has no legs. Meanwhile, the companies that we love, such as Apple, have very high profit margins, and I hear nobody complaining about them.
