Default Where To Buy You Gas

You might really want to pay attention to this as they are now saying that
>gas is going to hit the $3.00 mark! (Was on the nightly news 3/9/05)<

>Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it. It
>might even be good for us! The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We
>can 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. I thought it might be interesting to know which oil
>companies are the best to buy gas from and 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

this has been posted before and proved not to work before. Oil is a commodity (sp?) You can't change the price of it by boycotting certian brands. Also the companys that don't report buying midle eastern oil are just buying from a broker who buys it from the middle east. There just isn't enough oil elswhere to support our ussage. In order to affect the prices of oil we have to just plain use less fuel, not for a day not for a week, and not just from certian companys, we have to use less fuel period and keep using less fule. I don't see it happening any time soon though.
