Gas & Prices

Who do you buy your gas from?

An Interesting thought on who to buy gas from! Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid
putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just buy from gas companies that don't
import their oil from the Saudis. Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill-up the tank, I am sending my money to people who are trying to kill Americans. I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil companies are the best to buy gas from.

Major companies that import Middle Eastern oil
(for the period 9/1/00-8/31/01):

Shell 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon/Mobil 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco 62,231,000 barrels

If you do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount to over $18 BILLION!

Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:

Citgo 0 barrels
Sunoco 0
Conoco 0
Sinclair 0
BP/Phillips 0

All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and can be easily documented. Refineries located in the U.S.
are required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing. They report on a monthly basis.

Keep this list in your car; share it with friends. Stop paying for terrorism.

******************In order to not support Exxon and Mobil everyone should buy their gas from one of these companies not importing Arab oil. ***************************************************************************

Rumor has it that gas prices are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon by the summer Want gasoline prices to come down? We need to take some intelligent, united action."
