B of A is a really bad mortgage lender...  They foreclosed on homes they USED to own, AKA: Did not own any longer (mortgage loans are bought and sold)  There paper work on their Mortgage loans was so incompetent, and they paid minimum wage for those loan processing jobs...  I feel sorry for the customers that were screwed, it was unforgivable.   I will never bank at Bank of America again.

Thanks Tesoro!  You made out like bandits, and your stock is up 71%, at the expense of struggling American's.  I personally love spending more on diesel than premium.  Especially, since diesel, the UNREFINED fuel costs the least to produce of all fuels, even regular.  When you price gouge truckers, they pass it along, and it turns in to the worst inflation since the Carter Administration...I am glad your stock holders made out so well.  I hope NO ONE buys your fuel.  Boycott time!

A ten year history of a stock normally shows investors the accurate valueof the stock. Sales,debt loads,dividend payments give a far better picture of a good investment or a poor investment.

This should be tempered with  drastic changes in technology and transportation.

The vacuum cleaner replaced the broom.

The player piano was replaced by the record player.

The wagon business was overcome by the truck industry.

The dshwasher replaced the dish towels and racks.

I do not understand why the government can regulate the Cable industry, but they cannot regulate the oil industry? Profit is fine and all, but charging more for Unrefined diesel fuel than Refined Regular fuel is price gouging American's!!!!! 

Tesoro sucks!  Don't buy gas from these "A" holes.  They made their 71% profit, let them see what it is like to lose customers from price gouging.
