... you're so full of it...

CNN reports tonight that 1 in 1100 fills at gas stations in America results in a "pump 'n run." These events cost gas retailer $237 million dollars across (whatever period).

Wait for the wrath of the math.

If these figures are to be taken at face value, Americans spent $260.463 billion dollars on gasoline. $260 billion.

Even at a quarter the amount, implying that not everyone fills up and that most "pump 'n runners" took off with a full tank, that's still over $65 billion spent on gas.


Can anyone tell me how much oil companies' gross revenue is over any period?
