Gravity Is Energy, Correct?

I have heard everyone say that blackhole singularities are a point in space-time where gravity is infinite. If all blackholes had infinite gravitational singularities, then how could one be bigger than another. If I am correct in assuming infinity is as big as it gets, then what everyone is saying is possible that one singularity would have infinite gravity and a larger one would have infinite gravity x2 or x3 or x4...and so on. Wouldn't it be correct to say that blackhole singularities have an insurrmountable(yet finite) amount of gravitational energy? Can anyone help me?
