Big profits while screwing the little guy

It's very comforting to find out that Exxon has posted the largest profit for any company in U.S. history, all the while we're being told that skyrocketing gas prices have everything to do with supply and demand.

Now, I'm not an economist, but this seems just a little silly. While I have no problem with high gas prices, since it most impacts those jerks in SUVs who cut me off on my way to work or those guys with small penises who drive Hummers, and seems to have effectively snuffed out the market for gas guzzlers, it's galling at the same time to realize that all this time, big corporations are getting fat on their profits. Windfall tax, anyone?
