SEC filings by Conoco Phillips show they make $6.50 profit per barrel in the Lower 48. They make $9.40 per barrel profit outside the U.S., and $19 profit per barrel in Alaska. The new contracts they have negotiated with Iraq and Russia give them between $1.90-$2.50 per barrel (depending on the exchange rate and other factors).

The oil companies are spending a lot of money deliberately lying to the public.
