GASOLINE SOLUTION!

We CAN buy gasoline that's not from Middle East. 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.

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. 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 days! >>

Larry!

Good suggestion! I'll be sure to pass it on.

Fortunately for us in Sacramento, we have both Citgo and BP stations.

Of course, don't wear a T-shirt with this printed on it in a mall in Albany, NY. You could get arrested... Big Grin!
