Ashland Oil has not been the parent of Speedway/Marathon since 1995. They changed their name from "Ashland Oil" to "Ashland, Inc." after they sold off their oil holdings. As to lying, I know how to read Form 10-K's and Form 10-Q's to determine exactly how much profit a company made. I don't believe the mainstream media, although they are beginning to find out about the high profit margin of Apple. I trust the 10-K's and the 10-Q's because companies are required to sign certifications that the reported numbers are correct. One of the financial reforms that came out after the Enron debacle.
