I Care

We CAN buy gasoline that's not from Middle East. Why didn't George W.
think of this? 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 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 -

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 $18BILLION!

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. Keep this list in your car; share it 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!! 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 the 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 e-mail out to ten more
people within one day all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next eight

Is that oil is a commodity. Buying from other sources means that source doesn\'t supply as much to other countries. These countries then buy from the sources we boycott.

The only way to make a difference is to cut back on the amount of oil we consume and the products that require oil in manufacture. We\'re a society of consumers and nothing will change until that does.<br><font color=#65625E><font size=2>
That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

As you mention, oil is \"fungible\" meaning it is a commodity. If we buy from Kuwait v. Saudi Arabia, someone else will do the opposite: net is no impact.<br>02'M3

I could not agree with you more!!

I know Jason already debunked it, but I'll do it again as it seems to continue to get replies.

Hello, think about it. Generally speaking, any e-mail which promotes forwarding itself on is a hoax. Always check one of the urban legend web sites before actually forwarding this crap.
