As an average, the oil company makes $0.08 per gallon when the state and federal governments makes about $0.60 per gallon.
Why do you think increased prices are good for government? Let say that a product cost $100.00 and then there is a 15% V.A.T. added to the price, a total proce of $115.00. What happens if the prices goes down by 20%?
The product will cost! $80.00 (still giving the same profir for the business), but the V.A.T. will go down by $3.00. The total price will be $92.00.
The winner is the consumer, but who is the looser?
The government, their tax revenue has gone down by 20%
Large government needs aver increasing income; therefore, make sure that you stop the growth of government and actually decrease it!
