INTERESTING SOLUTION TO MIDDLE EAST PROBLEM...

    Gas Solution

    The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We should return the favor. An
    interesting thought is 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 per 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're required to report on a monthly basis.

    Keep this list in your car, share it with friends, but stop paying for terrorism! To have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers.

    It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out at this point. Keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people! I'm sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)... and so on, by the time this message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it - THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. How much would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to ten more people within one day all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next eight days!

    one less car - one less bomb

    even though some companies do not use imported oil,
    and rely on reserves found on North American soil...
    I'd hardly call them 'ethical companies'.

    but I know that I'm saving money and not contributing
    to the fall of western civilization by walking, biking and using public transit.

    why do that when you can just give israel the power and keep oil/gas prices cheap with no hassle?

    I've been walking to work lately.
    It only takes 20 minutes and I pass some interesting characters.
    This spring I will be the 'old-dude-on-a-skateboard' on my way to work.
    At least I can still heelflip in case any 13-year-old try to harass me.

    BP is the best gfas station ever. The one I go to still has the three bay service station, full serve pumps, a car wash, kerosene, and a propane fillup tank. And theres always like four people working there at once if you have any questions or problems with your car.

    Gas stations are not the way they used to be.

    there was this bp in mississippi that i used to go to that had some 'for amusement' slot machines. my grandpa would take me and my cousins in there when we visited and give us a few bucks to play. if they knew they would pay out so i always made about $50.
