American Gas -- or non Saudi Oil

This came from a church friend. I'm not sure if it is true or not.


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

Valero = 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.

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. Now, don't wimp out at this point....keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

It is important that we understand that (a) Hugo Chavez is not a dictator – he has been elected in what were described by international monitors as free and fair elections more than once, which is more that we in the U.S. can say about our own last couple of presidential elections; (b) Chavez has made it very clear that he does not “hate America”, he does, however, despise the current criminal/neocon dominated administration which has plotted at least two coups in an attempt to overthrow him; and, (c) “we” do not pay anything directly to Venezuela, the international conglomerate oil companies which purchase the oil from Venezuela fork-over the dollars. Venezuela has, on multiple occasions, provided heating oil at below market cost to low-income communities in the U.S. when our own government was cutting back on heating assistance to these same communities. Hugo Chavez, to be sure, has many flaws – just not the ones cited in this e-mail.

Propaganda is propaganda wherever it is generated, we just have a tendency to believe that our own must be true – more often than not, it is not. It might be helpful if we were to take a close look at the many ruthless dictatorships the U.S. government is officially supporting in our ongoing efforts to insure a continuing supply of gasoline for our suburban SUV lifestyle. These include such luminaries as: Saudi Arabia; Nigeria; Sudan; Uzbekistan; Kazakhstan; Kuwait; United Arab Emirates; Libya; Columbia (a U.S. puppet regime); etc. These are governments to which hundreds of billions of dollars of your tax money is being sent in the form of direct and indirect military aid – and this doesn’t even include the trillion dollar plus expenditure known as Operation Iraqi Liberation (OIL – the actual original operation name).

Sorry, but I am going to point out the obvious here.

If we only bought from suppliers of American gasoline, the refineries would quickly (a week, maybe in days??), not be able to supply America's appetite for oil. The only way to reduce our dependency on foreign oil is to use less, much much less of it. That includes what you put in your gas tank, and making dramatic efficiencies in home, office, agricultural, and manufacturing use of electricity. I think gas will reach about $8.00 a gallon before the average American will just begin to realize this...

Wow! No way is this accurate, or even believable! (Gotta tell ya, when I see AMERICAN underlined in all caps in the subject, my propaganda radar starts beeping.)

I highly recommend checking out these forwarded "warning" emails before passing on the "information"! is a good place to start, and apparently this one has been circulating for 3 years now.

BP just found 5.7 trillion barrels estimated off of California(this coming from someone from bp) is that not enough for us and on top of that believe it or not we have enough oil already capped off to run our economy for at least a hundred years already so why would any one think that if the demand for American oil went up they wouldn't build more refinerys
to compensate for the demand and on top of that ,a little off the subject but global warming has happened before and its going to happen again regardless of what you think but if it happened before there was no one using fossil fuels then so what ever you think about fuel prices and how we should stop using fossil fuels or what ever but until no one needs to rely on oil we are going to use it no matter what but the time where we come to that point is far from now so if instead of giving suadi all of that money so that our economy gets no benefits from the money going out and not coming in we should support our American oil companies so that they have the chance to expand so that we are no longer dependent on outsourced oil and so that the prices would eventually go down , and then deal with global warming when we don't have to worry about our economy going to shit
