Dan Maffei Press Conference
Dan Maffei is holding a press conference today:
The world's largest energy corporations including Exxon Mobil will release their second quarter profit numbers Thursday morning. Today, BP announced their profits rose 30% earning the corporation $7.3 billion last quarter.
"In some places in the Syracuse area, gas prices have soared to well over $3.00 a gallon. These energy companies are racking in billion dollar profits, but we are still paying record prices at the pump. It's not fair," said Dan Maffei. "Central New Yorkers are spending their summer months driving to camps in the Adirondacks or on Lake Ontario. Labor Day weekend is slowly approaching. We're traveling to visit relatives or friends at barbeques or family reunions. We shouldn't have to be paying so much for gas while the largest fuel companies make billions of dollars."
Maffei will be at the K-Mart parking lot in Mattydale next door to one of the most expensive gas stations in Onondaga County, the Mobil on Route 11 and Hinsdale Road. Mobil is currently charging $3.07 per gallon for regular unleaded.Maffei Press Conference On Gas Profits
