    WHERE TO BUY YOUR GAS ... THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON--

    Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might
    be good to reconsider. But this is NOT about rationing and price controls.

    While over here, all soldiers are aware that the Saudis are boycotting
    American goods. We should return the favor. An interesting thought. 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. An interesting side line is that their
    oil may be running out!

    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 major 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

    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
    ARC0.....................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.

    But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers.
    It's really simple to do. I am sending it to 35 on my list.

    Now, don't wimp out at this point...If each of you send it to at least ten
    and those ten send it to at least ten more and so on, by the time the
    message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over
    THREE MILLION consumers!

                More to the point, it's false. The BP distribution net certainly uses imported oil from the Middle East. Further, they own a very large interest in Amoco, which also imports ME oil.

                I can't believe this shit is still being circulated.
