GAS!!!

My friend jim brough this to my attention so i decided to put it out there... i already knew citgo buys no gas from the middle east i didnt realize it was so many different companies dont use middle eastern oil...

Why didn't George W. , AKA"Dubbya" ,think of this?
Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it.

It might even be good for us!


The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We should
return the favor. An interesting thought it to boycott their GAS.

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 me, my family, and my friends.

I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil
companies are the best to buy gas from and which major companies
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/Speedway.. 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 barrels

Conoco............. ..0 barrels

Sinclair............... 0 barrels

BP/Phillips.......... 0 barrels

Hess...................0 barrels

All of this information is available from the Department of
Energy and each is 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.

yeah...thats an OK idea..I'm all for doing it..BUT...Most of the Leaders of the United Arab Emerites have large stakes in forieng oil companies..so they will make money..just maybe not as much...however....if the US stopped buying Middle Eastern Oil, I don't think it would hurt them in the long run.....they already charge most other countries more for oil than they do us...so they'd make more money selling to governments like China, the EU etc who would gladly take up the slack...I think they only continue to sell to us because they fear what happens when they tell the US no (see Iraq for details)
