During the same time period, Chevron Texaco saw revenues increase 20% to $71.97B. Both of these companies were also beneficiaries of oil deals in Iraq during the reign of Saddam Hussein. Soaring natural gas prices pushed up profits for Texas power company TXU by 69% in Q3 2004 and Dallas energy company XTO saw profits rise 37%, also for Q3.

Meanwhile, President Bush signed into law a bill that will provide $145B in tax cut to these, and other companies.
