Chevron said its second-quarter profit rose 11 percent to a record $5.98 billion. Revenue rose significantly to $82.9 billion from $56.1 billion a year ago.
Shell's profit climbed 33 percent to $11.6 billion on earnings of $7.83 billion.
And ExxonMobil said net income rose 14 percent to $11.7 billion on earnings of $138 billion in the second quarter.
Exxon Mobil stood apart even from this crowd, recording the largest ever quarterly operating profit for a U.S. company.
We, of course, should feel sorry for them all. After all, it's hard work pumping up higher profits during tough economic times for American businesses.
