Why, ripping off the public, of course. Reuters reports that the East Bay oil giant has agreed to pay $46 million in royalties that, the Justice Department claimed, it underreported while extracting natural gas from land owned by the federal government. Chevron released a statement, in which officials claim that they agreed to settle in order to make a long, complicated legal headache go away. Uh huh. Funny how they're never so agreeable when they think they can win.
