This in part, a chain e-mail I received, then added some extra content for consideration.
If you want to fight terrorism, you can do your part by not supporting the countries that help finance terrorism through us buying their products. I think it would be good for all of us to start thinking about where the products origin is when purchasing any item, be it clothes, cars and especially GAS. It’s astounding how much we purchase in this country that is imported vs a homegrown product. I’d say only 10-15% of what we buy as consumers originate in the US.
Are you aware that the Saudis are boycotting American products? In
addition, they are gouging us on oil prices.
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 want me, my family and my
The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:
Exxon Mobil…130,082,000 bbl
CITGO oil is from Venezuela , the “President” is Dictator Hugo Chavez who
openly hates America and vows to cause 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 $70 per barrel, (today’s price) that’s over
$386 million PER DAY ($141 BILLION per year!) handed over to OPEC, many
of whose members are our confirmed enemies!!!
It won’t stop here - oil prices could go to $200 a barrel or higher if
we’re not careful and keep buying their products.
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
Valero… 0 barrels
Murphy Oil USA … 0 barrels
Note: Murphy is sold at Wal-Mart , the gas is from South Arkansas and
fully USA owned and produced.
*Not only that but they give scholarships to all children in their town
who finish high school and are legal US citizens. (except it’s Wal-Mart! bh)
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.
But to have a real impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas
buyers With the help of the Internet, it’s really simple to do. Just E-mail your friends and get the word out.
This is something we can truly do as individuals who are politically aware. I will feel a lot better about pumping my gas since it isn’t financing the people who hate us and are sworn enemies.
DOES THIS CHANGE ANYONES VIEWS ON THESE GAS COMPANIES?
WILL YOU CHANGE YOUR GAS VENDOR BASED IN THIS INFORMATION?
