Durbin pushing for oil company probe

"Just take a look at the record breaking profits of the oil companies," Durbin said. "It's not just record profits for their industry, it's record profits in the history of American business. They are making more money than ever than any other business, so if you want to know who is taking the money out of the system, that's exactly where you should look."

Senator Durbin has written a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking the panel to make investigating the oil companies a top priority.
