70. To recoup that 5 billion all they have to do
To recoup that annual 5 billion all the oil companies have to do is add $0.04 to each gallon of gas. We aren't even talking about the thoudands of other products they produce from crude oil(lubricants, plastics, fertilizers, etc). A penny here and a penny there they will double their profits under the guise of their new "tax increase" and the consumer will fund it.

At least when they are getting subsidies it is imaginary deficit money, cut them out or raise taxes and the costs get passed on to and come out of the consumers' pockets.
