Study: 66 Percent of Your Fill-Up Goes Into Oil Company Coffers

Thatís the finding from a new study by the Union of Concerned Scientists which found that, over the average lifespan of a vehicle, owners will spend about $20,000 in fuel during its 15-year run on the road and $14,000 will go directly to oil companies. For every $50 fill-up, $33 goes into the coffers of Chevron, ExxonMobile or BP, while very little of the remaining cash goes into the local economy or even back to oil company investors.
