Re: something we can do about gas prices


thanks, patricia. this is good stuff. got a web site for it?

yeah, and true about the saudis. osama's ties to the saudis are deep and strong, unlike his ties to iraq, which are fictional.

We CAN buy gasoline that's not from Middle East.
The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We should return the favor.
An
interesting thought is to boycott their GASOLINE. 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 my 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/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 report  on a monthly basis. Share this with friends.

Stop paying for terrorism.............

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas
buyers. It's really simple to do!!
I'm sending this note to each of you and if you would send it to at least 30
people think how many people we could reach.

This is something we can really do that could have a impact.
