Where to buy Gas

This was emailed to me and I thought it interesting:

Subject: Where to buy American (not foreign) GAS



Please forward this along to your family, friends, and co-workers

WHERE TO BUY AMERICAN GAS—THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON….

Gas rationing in the 70's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might even have been good for us!

Are you aware that the Saudis are boycotting American products?

Shouldn’t we return the favor? Can’t we take control of our own destiny and let these giant oil importers know who REALLY generates their profits—their livings? How about leaving American Dollars in America and reduce the import/export deficit.

An appealing remedy might be to boycott their GAS. Every time you fill up your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just purchase gas from companies that don't import their oil from the Saudis.

Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my tank, I’m sending my money to people who I get the impression want me, my family and my friends dead. Don’t you think it might be of interest to know which oil companies import Middle Eastern oil and which do not?

These companies import Middle Eastern oil:

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

And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela by Dictator Hugo Chavez who hates America and openly avows our economic destruction! (We pay Chavez’s regime nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)

The U.S. currently imports 5,517,000 barrels of crude oil per day from OPEC. If you do the math at $95 per barrel, that’s over $524 million PER DAY ($191 BILLION per year!) handed over to OPEC, many of whose members are our confirmed enemies!!!!!

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


Sunoco....................... 0 barrels
Conoco....................... 0 barrels
Sinclair....................... 0 barrels
BP / Phillips................ 0 barrels
Hess. ......................... 0 barrels
ARC0.......................... 0 barrels
Maverick………………….. 0 barrels
Flying J……………………. 0 barrels

All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy and each company is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing.

A couple of questions it left in my mind?

1. Where does the gas come from that Sprint, Murphy, Raceway, etc. pump? I for the most part pump my gas at an AAFES gas station, have no idea where they get there gas.

2. BP, thought that was a European oil company. If so, could they get around reporting to a U.S. what they import?
