Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee questions the heads of five of the largest oil and gas companies in the world, who appeared before the Senate Finance Committee on May 12, 2011 on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. The execs argued that ending tax incentives would reduce exploration, eliminate jobs and stifle economic growth while doing nothing to reduce fuel prices. Participating were executive officers of Exxon, BP America, Shell, ConocoPhillips and Chevron. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
