Chevron Corp on Friday posted its highest quarterly profit in eight years on surging oil and gas prices and as a recovery in motor fuel demand that boosted refining margins.

The strong results came a day after top executives from major oil companies were grilled by U.S. lawmakers for the industry's past dismissals of climate warming.

The company posted net income of $6.11 billion, or $3.19 per share, compared with a loss of $207 million, or 12 cents per share, a year ago. Its oil fetched nearly twice as much as a year ago and its U.S. produced gas sold for three times as much as a year ago.
