Exxon Mobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX) & ConocoPhillips (COP) are asking lawmakers not to punish them for damage inflicted from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by BP (BP). Good luck! The big oil companies are making billions & seen as the enemy by the Dems in power. Gov officials will find it easy to blame them for anything & everything. But in today's rally, each stock is up over $1.

Let's were where this rally takes us.
